Important Shuttle Notes

  • Shuttle Route: The shuttle will take passengers directly to Skyfest attractions at Arnold and O’Malley, without stopping at the Fairchild Front Gate. The shuttle will serve one stop at Yolk’s on Highway 2.
  • Return Shuttle Service: After 3:00 pm, return trips will bypass Highway 2 and Airway Heights unless requested by a passenger. Let your driver know if you need to stop at Airway Heights, and the route will be adjusted accordingly.

Route 61 Service Changes

Route 61 Highway 2/Fairchild will not serve the Fairchild AFB Front Gate between 8:20 am and 6:00 pm due to Skyfest. The route will end at the Spokane Tribe Casino.

Regular Route 61 riders can access Fairchild AFB by transferring to a Skyfest Shuttle at Yoke’s/Airway Heights Park & Ride.
