FAIR: Getting there by bus is hardly ‘a breeze’

The Washington State Fair insert in Wednesday’s News Tribune said it’s “a breeze” to get to the fair, so I went online to check the bus schedule.

As a fair employee, I can get there from the Lakewood Transit Center with three changes, but cannot get home when I work until 10:30 p.m. People who want to enjoy the fair at dark cannot get a bus home.

What is Pierce Transit’s reasoning for not having the “Fair Bus” as it did until a few years ago? I would gladly pay to ride the bus. A last-minute adjustment from Pierce Transit would be most appreciated by many people.
