TARC will adjust service on four
bus routes effective Sun., June 5 to more accurately reflect pick-up times at stops
based on traffic flow and other conditions.
Passengers on Routes #4-Fourth
Street, #18-Dixie-Preston highways, #71- Jeffersonville, Louisville, New Albany
and #6-Sixth Street are advised to check
schedules in advance of the changes for new bus departure times from stops.
TARC is also adding weekend
service to River Ridge Commerce Park and the Amazon Fulfillment Center as part
of the service adjustments on Route #71–Jeffersonville, Louisville, New Albany. Route #4-Fourth Street will be extended three
blocks west on Main and Market streets, traveling south on Ninth Street instead
of Sixth Street, to include more downtown museums and attractions.

The trip leaving Iroquois Park at 12:21 a.m. for Fifth Street at Broadway will leave five minutes later.
