Passengers should look for buses displaying the destination sign reading "2 - State Fair."

The fairgrounds TARC stop will be located on Circle of Champions opposite Broadbent Arena. Complimentary trams will transport TARC passengers to and from this stop to various fair locations.

Additional TARC service near the fairgrounds will be available on Crittenden Drive (Route 2) and Preston Highway (Route 18). Buses on those routes do not enter the fairgrounds.
