Special bus routes added to help with Summerfest

Summerfest opened Thursday and continues through Saturday on the Logan Tabernacle grounds. With its opening, that means heavy traffic and longer travel time for all Logan residents driving on Main Street. The popular event is known for its showcase of artistic talent and juried art, but in recent years the congestion along tabernacle square has been a problem. Lisa Peterson, Marketing Manager for the Cache Valley Transit District, says new, specialized bus routes will ease parking problems. “Have you ever tried to go and park anywhere near Summerfest around the tabernacle?” Peterson asks. “It’s really hard, kinda difficult to try to find any type of parking near by and so what we wanted to do was offer service where you wouldn’t have to park blocks away to have to walk into it. “You just park at the transit center and then get on and we let you off right in front of the Summerfest. So it’s really easy and convenient for people to be able to get to Summerfest.” The three buses will run every five to 10 minutes to the Logan Tabernacle from the transit center with two stops: one a block east of Summerfest, and another right on Main Street. Those wishing to attend Summerfest are encouraged to take advantage of the new bus route as it is free and runs from 10 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. throughout the fair.
