ATASCADERO — As part of the California Mid-State Fair sponsorship program, the City of Atascadero and the Atascadero Tourism Business Improvement District are introducing new, complimentary Fair Shuttle locations to the City.
This free shuttle service to the California Mid-State Fair includes Sunken Gardens at 6505 El Camino Real and Smart & Final at the current bus pick up location at the 8200 block of El Camino Real. In addition to these two new locations, there is a third location at Springhill Suites by Marriott at the 900 block of El Camino Real. CA Mid-State Fair event-goers are to look for the American Star Trailways buses operating each day of the Fair.
Plenty of parking is offered around each of the shuttle locations. You can park on the street and in City parking lots and marked locations. Smart & Final will be allowing parking on the East side of the parking lot closest to El Camino Real. Please make sure you do not park in restricted areas, as your automobile may be towed at your expense (parking is 100% the individual's responsibility). Also, please be aware and kind to neighboring businesses.
Atascadero shuttle stops will begin at 4 p.m. each day, with buses running every 30-40 minutes. Keep in mind that the times are approximate and should only be used as guidelines. Depending on the crowd size, pick up and drop off times could vary by up to 30 minutes. Please allow ample time to get to the fair. Keep in mind that concert tickets do not include general admission to the fair. Also, the evening time is busier with the popular concert schedule, so allow yourself plenty of time.
The City of Atascadero and the Atascadero Tourism Improvement District is thrilled to collaborate with the California Mid State Fair to offer this complimentary service. The addition of these locations will help us provide transportation to locations across town from the south end to the north end of the City.
