TARC service reductions to take effect June 30, 2024

June 12, 2024

Please note that post schedules (time tables adhered to the bus shelter) will begin to be posted Monday, July 1. Thank you for your patience. For information on when your bus will be arriving to your stop, please see the below pocket schedules.

TARC is facing a financial crisis as the agency will soon lose 20 percent of its operating budget as America Rescue Plan funding comes to an end.  Due to this challenge, a tough decision was made to reduce the frequency of routes effective June 30, 2024.

Specific details on the service reductions can be found below. If you have questions, please contact TARC’s Customer Care Line at 502-585-1234.

The service changes are the first step toward addressing a looming fiscal cliff. Action is necessary – without changes to the budget, TARC will be unable to meet expected expenses by mid-2026. 

“This is not an easy decision,” said TARC Executive Director Ozzy Gibson. “But this is an opportunity to avoid layoffs and keep hard-working Louisvillians employed and able to support their families. And by keeping more TARC staff working under the TARC umbrella, we’re preserving our ability to provide expanded service in the future if revenue is found.”

The service changes follow below. You can also find an additional overview of changes by clicking here. Please note that all routes will maintain their current hours and frequencies on Saturdays and Sundays.
