Special express bus routes to the Minnesota State Fair will run on Saturdays, Sundays and Labor Day from the Marschall Road Transit Station in Shakopee. Round-trip service is $5. However, Minnesota Valley Transit Authority is currently offering discount tickets online at through Aug. 23.

MVTA has provided special service to the State Fair since 1996. Last year, 8,803 fair-goers boarded weekend and Labor Day buses in Shakopee. Weekday express service to the fair is available from Burnsville Transit Station and Eagan Transit Station.

“Using public transportation is a convenient way to get to the fair,” said MVTA Executive Director Luther Wynder. “My first ride on an MVTA bus was going to the State Fair and it was a great experience. I hope to see many more riders join me this year. Whether you’re a first-time transit rider or a long-time customer, we encourage residents to ride the bus for a convenient trip and to minimize congestion near the fairgrounds.”
