Day Tripper One Day Pass 



The Day Tripper is intended to make public transportation a more convenient option for visitors by providing unlimited trips during any one-day period. TARC provides access to all downtown attractions via the Main-Market and Fourth Street trolleys and has frequent and direct service to shopping areas and attractions throughout the city on major TARC bus routes. The Day Tripper pass not only saves visitors money and the hassle of driving, but it also promotes a more environmentally friendly way to travel than a car rental or numerous cab rides. Day Tripper passes are sold only at the Louisville Visitors Center on 4th and Jefferson and at Union Station, 1000 W. Broadway.
