LAUDERHILL – BCT Goes Carnival! Whether you are a masquerader or spectator, Broward County Transit (BCT) is encouraging residents and visitors who plan to attend the Broward Caribbean Carnival to take routes 18, 36, 40 or 81 to the event at the Central Broward Regional Park on Sunday, October 12.

Transfers to the bus routes can be made from intersecting routes throughout the County, and to routes 40 and 81 at the Central Bus Terminal in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
“It is gratifying to have Broward County’s newest, premier regional park host this year’s event. The Carnival planners are expecting thousands to participate, and to avoid the hassles of finding a suitable parking place, why not relax and take a BCT bus?” said Broward County Commissioner Josephus Eggelletion, Jr. “The most convenient and cost-effective way to get to the Carnival is to ride BCT. There are many routes available to and from the park.”
