The OC Fair Express will not be providing service for the 2021 OC Fair season. We look forward to providing the OC Fair Express again next year.

In 2019, more than 80,000 people took the non-stop bus service to the OC Fair during the five weekends of the fair’s run, which wrapped up August 11. Their use of the express bus service resulted in thousands of cars being taken off local roads, improving overall traffic conditions and reducing air pollution in the process.

The OC Fair Express bus service has been transporting passengers directly to the OC Fair every year since 2011. The service is funded in part by a grant from the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee. The committee provides subsidies for cleaner transportation alternatives.

Four of the nine OC Fair Express pickup locations were located at Metrolink passenger rail stations. Riders used their valid Metrolink and Amtrak Pacific Surfliner passes from connecting trains to ride the OC service for free.

Riders also saved money. Regular bus fare was $4 round trip and riders received a coupon for $4 admission to the OC Fair – a savings of up to $10 off the regular entrance price. Bus riders also saved on the regular $10 cost to park a car.

Look for the OC Fair Express again when the fair returns next July 2022.
