TARC service adjustments in effect Derby week 

 

April 25, 2013 

  

 

TARC will provide to Churchill Downs for the Kentucky Oaks and Derby on regular routes that will follow detours away from the track starting at about 4:30 p.m. on both race days.  Click the link for detours for the Pegasus Parade on Thursday, May 2. 

 

Routes providing the most direct access are:   #2 – Second Street; #4 – Fourth Street;  #6 – Sixth Street; and #29 – Eastern Parkway.   

Frequency of bus arrival times vary, from every 15 minutes on Route #4 on Friday to 90 minutes between buses on Route #2 on Saturday.  Passengers are encouraged to plan ahead and know their routes and schedules. For information on fares, please click here.

 

After the races, due to detours, buses will pick people up at a different stop than where they were dropped off. A separate listing of detours is provided. Non-Derby TARC riders also will be affected by detours near the track.   

 

TARC no longer provides shuttle service for the Derby and Oaks from downtown, Papa John’s Stadium or the Fairgrounds due to changes in federal regulations regarding private charter service.
