Whatcom Transportation Authority (WTA) will provide free rides on all bus trips within Whatcom County from August 11 through August 17, 2019.
For riders headed to the Northwest Washington Fair, WTA is also offering a special 10 p.m. bus from the fairgrounds back to Bellingham. This 10 p.m. bus will depart from a bus stop across the street from the fairgrounds, between Bank of the Pacific and Fairside Drive. It will make two stops: Cordata Station, located near Whatcom Community College, and downtown’s Bellingham Station. Like all rides during Free Fare Week, rides on this special 10 p.m. bus are free.
In addition to the special 10 p.m. bus, WTA’s Route 26 provides bus regular service to the fairgrounds between the hours of 6:20 a.m. and 8:20 p.m. on weekdays, and from 8:50 a.m. and 5:50 p.m. on Saturdays.
Riders wishing to park and ride can park for free at WTA’s Cordata Station. Parking is first come, first served, and overnight parking is not allowed.
