#RiderAlert: TARC Suspends Service Effective 6 PM
TARC Suspends Service Effective 6 PM
Suspended service in effect Wednesday, September 23 at 6 PM
LOUISVILLE, KY. (September 23, 2020) —
TARC is suspending all transit services, effective at 6 PM tonight.
Our primary responsibility is to safely transport passengers from origin to destination in a timely fashion. Due to the roving locations of current demonstrations in Greater Louisville causing roadway obstructions, our drivers cannot safely move about the city.
We recognize the inconvenience this may cause to our passengers. This is a decision made with careful thought and evaluation. This decision is warranted and in the best interest of safety.
It is important to note- this action is not a commentary on the protests and demonstrations themselves. It is however, a recognition that we cannot ask our drivers to operate on roadways crowded with pedestrians, or our passengers, who encompass all ages and abilities, to remain on buses, unable to move for indefinite amounts of time.
TARC expects to resume regular service on September 24, 2020.
