Avoid the Bloomsday Driving Crowds- Take the STA Shuttle

Bloomsday 2014 is this weekend and many people are wondering how they're going to get downtown and where they can park. Spokane Transit Authority has your answer: don't drive, take the bus! Avoid traffic and parking snarls caused by closed roads and thousands of people jamming into one small area by taking one of their direct shuttles from Spokane Valley Mall, Ferris High School, Northtown Mall, and Cheney/EWU.

You can find out more about these shuttles or regular routes at the STA booth at the Bloomsday Tradeshow when you pick up your race packet on May 2 and 3. You can also pick up sticker passes there for all routes on race day. Or you can go to the STA website for more information.
