  • Federal law forces CamTran to alter FolkFest bus schedule Limited free bus transportation to Johnstown FolkFest will be available this year, but the word shuttle is taboo. According to Jim Parks, director of operations for CamTran, a new federal law that regulates the chartering of public bus systems has caused some changes in the transportation system. CamTran will provide limited free transit service between FolkFest and the Cambria City Ethnic Festival along existing bus routes.
