Shuttle service from Kitsap Mall to the County fair announced

(Port Orchard, WA) Kitsap County is partnering with the Bremerton School District to provide free shuttle service from Kitsap Mall during this year's County Fair & Stampede. Two buses will run from the north parking lot at Kitsap Mall to the Kitsap Sun Pavilion on the fairgrounds. Participants should park in the parking lot near the Kohl's store.

In 2009 Kitsap Transit's Board of Directors eliminated all special bus service, including the shuttles they previously provided for the Fair & Stampede. "We know Kitsap Transit faces the same budget challenges many agencies are facing, and must cut services to meet those challenges," said Charlotte Garrido, Kitsap County Board of Commissioner Chair. "Our Fair volunteers got creative and came up with a terrific solution. Partnering with the School District provides a huge benefit to residents attending the fair by continuing the well-used and much appreciated shuttles, and helps keep traffic manageable," said Garrido.

The shuttles run on a set schedule as shown below. The busses also run through the parking areas to transport residents attending the fair from the parking areas to the fairgrounds. Kitsap Transit does have a regular route (#37) that is available during the regular schedule for that run. Route #13 runs down Central Valley Road near the fairgrounds and can also be used by residents attending the fair who want to avoid parking challenges at the Fair. Check the links below for specific schedules.

"We think this is a great solution to the current challenges and encourage everyone to Kick it Up at this year's Fair & Stampede," said Garrido.
