Service Adjustments to Routes #15, #19, #20 and #23, Effective August 12

Service Adjustments to Routes #15, #19, #20 and #23, Effective August 12

July 31, 2018

The Transit Authority of River City (TARC) announces adjustments and improvements to underperforming routes. The changes allow TARC to avoid eliminating bus routes that could significantly impact service.

Schedule changes with some frequency reductions on #23 – Broadway, including minor adjustments to Rt. #15 – Market St. and service improvements to Rt. #20 – Riverport Circulator will begin on the effective date.

These adjustments allow TARC to continue providing service in areas of the community with low performing routes, while minimizing any potential impact to current service provided. Additionally, service changes will not affect weekend service.

Adjustments on TARC routes are as follows:

Rt. #15 – Market St.

Minor routing changes are proposed to avoid delays at the railroad crossing on LaGrange Road and UPS Drive.

Rt. #19 – Muhammad Ali Blvd.

Service changes involve a reduction in the number of trips; however, frequency was maintained at approximately 15 – 20 minutes during the AM and PM peak hours and 30 minutes on other trips. Due to parallel service provided by Routes #15, #21, #23 and #31 along the same corridor or within walkable distances, impact to service provided will be minor.

Due to construction activities at Oxmoor Mall and Beecher Terrace temporary stops will be established in these areas.

Rt. #20 – Riverport Circulator

Routing and schedule adjustments will address feedback to improve connections between Valley High School and JCTC Southwest. These adjustments will also provide daily service to Riverport and improve transfer opportunities to Routes #18 – Preston – Dixie and #63 – Crums Ln. resulting in 30-minute arrivals to Riverport during the AM and PM peak hours.

Service frequency and the number of trips to the Riverport area remain the same.

Rt. #23 – Broadway

Frequency will be adjusted from 13 to 16 mins. on Broadway between Shawnee Park and Bardstown Rd. at Taylorsville Rd. and from 36 to 48 mins. on other areas along the route.
