May 17, 2016


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.
