TARC to host comment period for new fare system

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – TARC is looking at making some changes to the way riders pay and is looking for public input.

Officials are going to start testing a new smart card to pay for trips to replace the old paper-based system.

There are also plans for riders to be able to scan their smartphones as payment options.

TARC hopes these new payment systems will streamline the process and get to their destinations faster.

There will be several weeks of public comment so you can voice your opinion about the proposed payment system.

The first public comment open house will be Aug. 15 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Union Station located at 1000 West Broadway.
