TCAT to offer free “Fireworks” service July 3

TCAT will operate free, convenient bus service for the Ithaca Community Fireworks Celebration held in Stewart Park on the night of Sunday July 3rd. A rain date is scheduled for Tuesday, July 5th. Buses with destination signs on the front of the buses marked “Fireworks” will begin service, approximately every 10 minutes, starting at 7:30 pm., from Albany Street @ State Street (Salvation Army), Green Street Station and Seneca Street Station. Service to Stewart Park will end at 9:30 pm., just before fireworks are scheduled to begin. The “Fireworks” buses will also stop at all intersections along Cayuga Street, only as far as Lincoln Street. There will be no pick‑up/drop‑off service from Lincoln Street to Stewart Park.Those attending the event can also park their vehicles and walk to Stewart Park from the Ithaca High School and Boynton Junior High School parking lots. After the fireworks show, passengers are asked to immediately board in the entryway circle in Stewart Park for their return trip. Those wishing to enjoy the fireworks are urged to take advantage of the well‑lighted and convenient parking in downtown parking garages. Another plus: parking is free in downtown garages on Sundays! This fun community event is co-sponsored by the City of Ithaca and Friends of Stewart Park, supported by numerous volunteers, and funded solely by donations.
