The City of Fresno is providing a free shuttle service if you'd like to watch the Extreme Makeover in progress.

FAX buses are picking people up at the Convention Center in Downtown Fresno and taking them to the Central Fresno construction site.

The shuttles run from 8 am until 8 pm through Thursday.

Hundreds of people caught the shuttle Sunday for a sneak peek at the home. Some fans came from as far away as Dos Palos.

"This is a great way to do it. I think it's the only way we'll have a possibility of seeing it," said Shuttle Rider Jan Wood.

"This is great. This is much easier than trying to get into the neighborhood. For us, and for them," said Shuttle Rider Jennifer Dana.

The building phase is underway right now through Tuesday. Wednesday is furniture move-in day, and then, on Thursday, you'll hear host Ty Pennington say "Move that bus!" That's when the home is revealed and the family gets their first look inside.
