The McLean Community Center is offering a free shuttle service to and from the McLean Day 2012: Celebrating Our Hometown festival on Saturday, May 19. The festival will be held from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. at Lewinsville Park, 1659 Chain Bridge Road.

The Center has taken a number of measures to improve the traffic patterns and make it easier and safer for festival participants to get in and out of the park. Parking is prohibited at the park all day. The Center has arranged a shuttle bus service and three shuttle locations will be used to reduce the number of vehicles on the streets surrounding the park.

Several shuttle buses at each site will be available from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the following locations:

The McLean Community Center, 1234 Ingleside Avenue. Meet the shuttle at the Center’s front entrance.

McLean Baptist Church, 1367 Chain Bridge Rd, across from Franklin Sherman Elementary School and Langley Shopping Center. Meet the shuttle at the stop on Brawner Street.

Lutheran Church of the Redeemer, 1545 Chain Bridge Rd. Meet the bus at the church entrance.

In addition, the Center also will run a number of small transportation carts, similar to those used in airports, from the rear of the Lewinsville Senior Center, 1609 Great Falls Street. Riders can meet the carts at the stop on Evers Drive, which is behind the Center. Follow the signs to the pickup location on Evers Drive.
