TARC offering unlimited rides through Youth Summer Pass

The transportation company says the pass program aims to keep busy kids safe.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Transit Authority of River City, or TARC, is bringing back the Youth Summer Pass.

June 1 through August 31, young people ages 6-19 who purchase a pass can utilize unlimited travel through TARC.

The $30 cost covers all bus fare throughout the summer.

The transportation company said the goal is to kids get where they need to be safely, whether it's a part-time job, summer camp, or a local swimming pool.

Passes go on sale Monday, May 22.

To purchase a pass, a current MyTARC student identification card is required. Those can be purchased for a one-time set-up fee of $5 at Union Station on West Broadway, or at the Nia Center, located at 2900 West Broadway.

Passes can also be reloaded or purchased here, and at select Kroger stores around Kentuckiana.
