TARC Celebrates Launch of MyTARC with System Wide Complimentary-Fare Service

Louisville, Ky. (January 03, 2019) ̶  TARC will offer complimentary-fare service on all routes for January 4th, 5th, & 6th in celebration of the official launch of TARC’s Electronic Fare Collection System, MyTARC.

“MyTARC is a major piece of a larger effort to connect our neighborhoods through safe, comfortable, and reliable service,” said TARC Interim Executive Director, Ferdinand L. Risco Jr., “As we celebrate this momentous change in transportation for the community we’re happy to provide complimentary-fare service system wide for the three days prior to launch.”

Starting on January 7th, 2019 buses will no longer accept paper tickets or paper passes. Cash will still be accepted, though fare will be reduced to 1.50 when using your MyTARC Card. Passengers who have yet to pick up their MyTARC card are encouraged to take advantage of this complimentary service and come to Union Station or the Nia Center to get their card before the launch date.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

This new system will allow customers to Tap, Save, and Go! Paying fare with a simple “tap” of the card will replace the 20-year-old fare box that only accepted cash and paper tickets. Fares will not increase. Cash payment – full fare is required – will remain an option. Adult one-way fare using the MyTARC card will be $1.50, compared to $1.75 with cash. Passengers with a MyTARC card will receive a free electronic transfer good for two hours from initial boarding. TARC will no longer offer paper transfers.
