July 30, 2019 – Washington Co., WI – For years GO Riteway Transportation Group helped folks from Washington County get down to the Wisconsin State Fair. It was an easy ride back and forth for a reasonable cost.
That’s not happening this year.
“We’re not able to do it this year again,” said Lisa from GO Riteway in Richfield. “The ridership has been down and we just can’t do it again this year.”
In 2018 the local bus company issued a statement:
“GO Riteway has decided that due to the under utilization of our shuttle service to the Wisconsin State Fair, we will no longer provide this service.”
Neighbors are not too thrilled; many say it was super convenient.
The Wisconsin State Fair does provide some options. Click HERE for more details.
There are shuttles and Freeway Flyers that run out of Park & Ride lots, but it looks like you have to get as close to Brown Deer Road or jump into neighboring Waukesha County if you want to take advantage of that. Details are HERE.
If you did find a convenient way to the Wisconsin State Fair… feel free to share your insight. Many have said in the past there is a very convenient Park & Ride at Watertown Plank Road, however it’s advised you get there early as it fills up fast.

The Wisconsin State Fair runs Aug. 1 – 11.
