Yolobus is celebrating summer and the Yolo County Fair with no fare boardings for youth riders ages 5 through 18 years on all Yolobus routes from Wednesday, Aug. 14 through Sunday, Aug. 18. The Yolo County Fair began in 1935 and is the largest and oldest free  gate fair in California. Skip the hassle of parking and save gas by taking the kids on Yolobus to the fair to enjoy the many food booths, children events, livestock shows, and the very popular Vocal Showcase (formerly Yolo Idol). “The summer tradition of the Yolo County Fair is something that Yolobus whole-heartedly supports,” states Terry Bassett, Executive Director of Yolobus. “Our No Fare Fair Days kids promotion is meant to encourage family fun at the Yolo County Fair and beyond, and to showcase just how easy it is to get around Yolo County using Yolobus. Plus the ride is comfortable with free Wi-Fi and air conditioning!”  Access the Yolo County Fair by taking Yolobus routes 210, 211, and 212 and additionally during weekdays route 214.
