Parking and shuttle service planned for Youngstown air show

Posted: Updated:
VIENNA TOWNSHIP, Ohio - In conjunction with the Youngstown Air Reserve Base Community Council, Youngstown Air Partners, Community Bus Services and several local law enforcement agencies and businesses, the Youngstown Air Reserve Station has released its parking and transportation plan for the Thunder Over the Valley Air Show scheduled for May 17-18.

Due to limited parking availability at the base and the anticipated large crowds, air show guests must park at designated off-station locations from where they will be shuttled to the site of the event.

The locations include:

Eastwood Field at the Eastwood Mall shopping complex, 111 Eastwood Mall Blvd, Niles

Delphi-Packard Electric Systems (Phantom Fireworks property) at North River Rd. and Larchmont, 165 N. River Rd. NW, Warren.

Youngstown Air Partners will provide shuttle service to the station aboard Community Bus Service buses. Although admission to the air show is free, CBS will collect $5 per seat (unlimited all-day round trip shuttle service) to help subsidize the cost of transporting guests to the station.

"During our last air show, Air Force funds covered the cost of busing. In the current fiscal climate, that is not possible," said Col. James Dignan, 910th Airlift Wing commander. "We are pleased our private sector community partners are able to transport our guests to the air show for a nominal but necessary fee."

The parking areas will open and bus pass sales begin at 8 a.m. on both show days. Shuttle service begins at 8:45 a.m. and the show gates open at 9 a.m. Once parked, show guests will purchase their shuttle ticket, board a bus and be transported to the air reserve station for the show. Bus passes may be purchased from CBS prior to the show, beginning May 12, at the Eastwood Mall.

The shuttles will be available to guests for the duration of the air show. Shuttles transporting guests to the air station will cease operations at 3 p.m. However, shuttles returning guests to parking areas will operate until the show grounds close at 7 p.m.

Air show guests can tune into several local radio stations that will broadcast real-time traffic and parking updates.
These stations include:

93.3 FM
95.9 FM
98.9 FM
106.1 FM,
570 AM
1390 AM.

Additional stations may be added prior to the air show.

More than 50,000 people are expected to attend the show, which will be free to the public.
