It’s Deschutes County Fair time. And sometimes, after a long day of rides and entertainment, getting home is a challenge. Lt. Nathan Garibay with Redmond Police says the shuttle is very convenient and handy to use. But if you opt to drive, knowing when to leave is important. "As soon as the concerts get out, we start to see a real spike in the traffic exiting the fairgrounds. And then that goes on through closing time. And so there's a couple of hours period there where we have quite a few resources deployed out there on airport way trying to mitigate the traffic jams and the traffic hazards as best we can." Over the past few years, Fair and community officials have designed a shuttle schedule that will help ease traffic congestion and frayed nerves. Buses shuttle between Bend High, Redmond High and Sisters Elementary on a regular schedule. We have a link to the shuttle at kbnd.com.
