Louisville, KY (WHAS11) - The Transit Authority of River City (TARC) is making adjustments and improvements to underperforming routes. The changes will allow TARC to avoid eliminating bus routes that could significantly impact service. These changes will not affect their weekend service.
According to the TARC website, schedule/frequency and other minor adjustments will be made on these routes beginning August 12th:
Rt. #15 - Market Street: Minor routing changes are proposed to avoid delays at the railroad crossing on LaGrange Road and UPS Drive.
Rt. #19 - Muhammad Ali Blvd: Service changes involve a reduction in the number of trips; however, frequency was maintained at approximately 15 - 20 minutes during the AM and PM peak hours and 30 minutes on other trips. Due to parallel service provided by Routes #15, #21, #23 and #31 along the same corridor or within walkable distances, impact to service provided will be minor.
Due to construction activities at Oxmoor Mall and Beecher Terrace temporary stops will be established in these areas.
Rt. #20 - Riverport Circulator: Routing and schedule adjustments will address feedback to improve connections between Valley High School and JCTC Southwest. These adjustments will also provide daily service to Riverport and improve transfer opportunities to Routes #18 – Preston – Dixie and #63 – Crums Ln. resulting in 30-minute arrivals to Riverport during the AM and PM peak hours.
Service frequency and the number of trips to the Riverport area remain the same.
Rt. #23 - Broadway: Frequency will be adjusted from 13 to 16 mins. on Broadway between Shawnee Park and Bardstown Rd. at Taylorsville Rd. and from 36 to 48 mins. on other areas along the route.
