C-TRAN will again provide free shuttle service to this year's Clark County Fair. Shuttles will start running at noon each day of the fair, which kicks off Friday, August 5, and continues through Sunday, August 14. Buses will take riders directly to the fairgrounds' east entrance from six locations: Vancouver Mall Transit Center, 99th Street Transit Center, Fisher's Landing Transit Center, La Center Park & Ride, Ridgefield Park & Ride, and Battle Ground (at Fairgrounds Avenue, just east of the Battle Ground Community Center).
In addition to free service, anyone who rides a shuttle can receive a coupon for $1 off fair admission at the gate.
C-TRAN offered free shuttle service to the Clark County Fair in 2015, resulting in a 20 percent increase in ridership to the event over the previous year. The C-TRAN Board of Directors in May voted to offer free shuttle service to the fair again in 2016 as part of our continued efforts to boost ridership and serve the community.
This year's service will also include free early-bird shuttles to the fair's annual opening day pancake breakfast on Friday, August 5. Buses will leave beginning at 8 a.m. from Fisher's Landing, Vancouver Mall and 99th Street transit centers, 8:30 a.m. from Battle Ground and La Center, and 8:40 a.m. from Ridgefield. Shuttles will continue operating until approximately 11 a.m. Regular shuttle service to the fair will begin at noon and continue past 11 p.m. each day. Full shuttle schedules are available online at www.c-tran.com.
C-TRAN is a proud sponsor of the Clark County Fair, and we'll have staff on hand at our bus booth throughout the event. People are encouraged to stop by for special giveaways and information, or just to say hello.
