    “We know the traffic line can go all the way up Buena Vista Street toward the rodeo grounds as rodeo fans head to the event, so LOTRA has hired WRTA to help by shuttling people who want to park at the Lander Community Center,” said LOTRA rodeo committee member Julie Freese.

    The free shuttle bus will run from 5:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. only on July 4th.
