About Us

The Transit Authority of River City (TARC) serves a historic region born from a legacy of satisfying the needs of transit. Separated by the Ohio River—a major transportation and trading route—at the Falls of the Ohio rapids, the cities of Louisville and Portland in Kentucky, and Jeffersonville, Clarksville and New Albany in Indiana were founded and grew as major hubs of trade and business as travelers came ashore to transport their goods.

TARC values that legacy and continues to honor the rich history that built its service region by striving to provide the best service for all passengers.

Rolling Since 1974

MyTARC is launched! A new fare payment system that introduces electronic fare cards and moves our community to the front of transit service in the country.        

TARC’s new website is launched offering a Dynamic Trip Planner allowing passengers to plan and book their full trip all in one location, whether that trip is 100% TARC reliant or requires rideshare, taxi, bicycle, or other means of reaching their destination.
