Illinois State Fair 2017

Bus service to the Illinois State Fair is provided by 3 routes. During the day, Route 1 - North 5th goes to gate 11 (8th & Sangamon) and Route 2 - North 9th goes to both the main gate on its outbound trip and Peoria & Joles on its way back downtown. A special night service route, Route 901 H, will run 30-minute trips on weeknights during the fair (Friday, August 11th - Friday, August 18th).

Taking the bus to the Illinois State Fair is easier than ever now that many navigation apps have integrated SMTD scheduling information, including Google Transit which is used in the Trip Planner below.
