The Transportation Committee is inviting you to join us on Saturday, November 11, for an all-day field trip. We are going to explore public transportation (and life without a car) while we travel to Bellingham via Amtrak and explore both Fairhaven and Bellingham while only using the city’s bus system. This is your chance to experience life without a car, and instead, use public transportation. We'll have nine hours once we arrive in Fairhaven to make a trip to downtown Bellingham via the city bus to visit the city’s Farmers’ Market, stores, and museums downtown and then back to Fairhaven to explore the shops and have dinner before we head back home that evening.

Train Departure Times: Edmonds (8:16 a.m.), Everett (8:41 a.m.), Stanwood (9:11) Arrival in Bellingham (Fairhaven) 9:54 a.m. Itinerary (Everything is optional, except the train trip. 😊) *Arrive at the Amtrak station in Fairhaven – From here, you can go solo, buddy up, or travel with a small group. It’s up to you!

Catch Whatcom Transit Authority bus Route 1 ($1)to the Bellingham Farmers Market at 1100 Railroad Avenue. – The Farmers Market is only open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

*Or shop in downtown Bellingham if you wish.

If shopping isn’t your thing, there are museums downtown you might want to explore:
SPARK Museum of Electrical Invention
Mindport Exhibits
Whatcom Museum Lightcatcher Building

Take the Route 1 bus back to Fairhaven (whenever you’d like to ($1). Visit the shops in Fairhaven Village, (Think a 3-story bookstore, ice cream shops, gift shops, dinner at one of the restaurants.) You could also visit the Whatcom Art Market  , the Atwood Gallery, or the Peter James Photography Gallery.

Board Amtrak for home at 7:44 p.m.
Arrival Times: Mount Vernon – 8:13 p.m. Stanwood – 8:27 p.m. Everett – 9:07 p.m. Edmonds – 9:30 p.m.

Be sure to register on the LWVSC event calendar, so we’ll know to keep an eye out for you on the train. That’s it. Remember, you are responsible for buying your own train ticket! We recommend that you buy it as soon as you know that you’ll be joining us. All non-LWVSC spouses and plus ones are welcome to join us too! Don’t miss out on the fun!
