Ride Express Bus, Get $2 O.C. Fair Admission

Orange County Transportation Authority offers discounted fair tickets to attendees who ride the Fair Express to the annual summer event.

Get discounted tickets to the Orange County Fair and forget about hunting for a parking spot by riding the Fair Express, a bus directly to and from the fair from eight O.C. locations.

The ride costs $1.50 each way, but comes with a coupon for $2 admission to the fair, which kicks off Friday in Costa Mesa.

The bus will run hourly every Friday, Saturday and Sunday during the fair, which is open through Aug. 12. It will drop riders off in front of the fair's yellow gate.

Without the discount, tickets to the fair are $11 general admission, $8 for seniors 60 and up, or $6 for those 6 to 12 years old.

Fair Express buses will shuttle fairgoers to and from eight O.C. locations:

Fullerton Park and Ride
3000 W. Orangethorpe Ave

The Depot at Santa Ana
1000 E. Santa Ana Blvd.

Goldenwest Transportation Center (Huntington Beach)

So they aren't giving a free inaugural ride like they did last year?

@Alberto: I haven't seen anything to indicate that, but will let you know if we hear otherwise.

Too bad it starts so late on Friday for us in RSM. Not until 3:00 from Laguna Hills location.

So we just pay the fair when we get to the bus, or have to buy tickets somewhere?
