Westman Communications Shuttle Bus Service
Since drinking and driving is never an option, and parking is limited at the Countryfest Site, the Shuttle Bus is an excellent way to get to and from the festival. The Bus runs approximately every 20 minutes, and stops at nine locations in Dauphin (see list below), and then on to the Countryfest Site. Shuttle Bus fee is $5.00 to board the bus or get a weekend wristband for only $25.00.
