TARC Saves a Seat for Black History Month, Celebrates African American Leaders in the Community

January 31, 2023

TARC is saving a seat on every bus in honor of Black History Month. These seats will highlight both national and local African American figures from throughout the Greater Louisville region.  

“TARC is proud to once again celebrate an important month by joining other transit agencies from across the country in honoring those who’ve fought to make public transportation in our community and nation a more equitable place,” said TARC Executive Director Carrie Butler.

Throughout the month of February on social media, TARC will celebrate the significant role Black Americans have played in American History by bringing attention to historic individuals and moments in the Civil Rights movement, as well as local African American leaders who have stood out for their unique contributions.
