2019 Labor Day Weekend

All weekend bus routes - Blue, Green, and Orange -  stop across the street from Campus U Totem on University Way. From this bus stop, it is a short 10-minute walk to the Fairgrounds. The Blue Route also has a bus stop on Chestnut and 6th Avenue, just one block from the Fairgrounds.

On Saturday, Sunday and Monday, Central Transit service start at 7:30 AM and last pick up on Chestnut Street is at 6 PM. 

Central Transit is a fare-free bus service for all riders. Just hop on the bus at one of our over seventy bus stops, and we'll get you to the Fair and Rodeo.

Many of Ellensburg hotels are also on bus routes, so visitors can leave their vehicle parked, and hop on the bus.



On Saturday, August 31, 2019, all bus routes will have slight deviations from the beginning of each route until the 12pm-1pm hour due to the parade. Buses will run, but some routes will have detours. Bus service will resume regular schedule after the Parade. We appreciate your understanding and patience during this time.

Buses will start offering rider service at 7:45 AM. Below is a list of missing stops during the morning/early afternoon of Saturday, August 31, 2019.
