Free fare week slated for August

Just in time for the August 14–19 Northwest Washington Fair, Whatcom Transit Authority (WTA) is lifting fees for all bus routes, with exception of 80X to Mt. Vernon, August 13–19.

WTA will extend a temporary evening route that leaves at 10 p.m. from the Northwest Washington Fairgrounds in Lynden back to Bellingham. The bus will depart across from the fairgrounds, between Bank of the Pacific and Umpqua Bank, and will stop at the Cordata Station and the downtown Bellingham station.

In addition to the temporary route, route 26 also provides service to the fairgrounds. It departs from the Cordata Station between 6:20 a.m. and 8:20 p.m. Monday through Friday and between 8:50 a.m. and 5:50 p.m. on Saturdays.
