Ride the bus to the fair!

If you are going to the La Crosse Earth Fair at Myrick Park on April 28 and you can't ride, roll, or walk there, take the bus!

The MTU #4 will divert its route on that day to get you right to the park. Even better, fares will be FREE!! 

If you don't live on the #4 route, there are several large parking lots along the way where you can park and hop on the bus. Big lots are by the old Shopko South, near the Village Shopping Center, and by the Western TC Apprenticeship building on 21st Place S.

Or, you could park at the Jay Street ramp which is just across the street from the Transit Center. Or, you can take another bus to the Transit Center and transfer to the #4.

There will be no driving around looking for a parking place, no walking blocks to get back to your car. And it'll be so much fun (and safer and less stressful!) You never know who you'll meet on the bus!

If you are going with a group, you don't need to worry about how many people fit in your car. If you have little kids, riding the bus can be part of the fun of the fair. And it's a great opportunity to talk with them and others about the climate benefits of public transit.

If you've never ridden the bus before, LATA (La Crosse Area Transit Advocates) offers Rides with a Guide. We'll ride with you, make sure you understand the apps and maps, and answer your questions so you can become a bus riding pro. Contact us to set up a guided ride by email ( or by phone: 608-315-2693.

See you at the fair! See you on the bus!
