Community Outreach

Active engagement in the communities we serve has always been important to the Transit Authority of River City (TARC).

Participation in community events offers TARC the opportunity to share information about the affordability of riding, the exciting projects and initiatives we have going on, and how we support economic and community development.

Riders, the general public, and community stakeholders always learn something new when stopping by the TARC booth at community festivals and events.

From the Pegasus Parade to school field trips to special services like travel training and MyTARC bus appearances – TARC proudly joins with many community partners each year to show support for the region we serve.

TARC offers a variety of ways for individuals and groups to connect and learn more about its services:

Community Festivals and Events – TARC personnel set up a booth or bring a coach onsite to promote rider service, for travel training and engage with the community

Educational Fieldtrips – TARC invites children of all ages to Historic Union Station to learn about the history of transportation, visit our bus barn, see our mechanics in action or learn about careers at TARC.

Historical Tours – Visit Union Station and step back in time to a period when trains where king and Presidents road the rails.

Travel Training – Live step-by-step tutorial to help new riders feel confident riding TARC
