    It sounds like you will not have a shuttle bus this year…right? Do you know if any GRTC busses stop near the festival area?

  2. There are some shuttles leaving from Cloverleaf and the Diamond (just updated the page!).

    It looks like the 67, 72, 73, and 74 all stop at 8th and Byrd which would be walking distance.
