TARC proposing more service cuts beginning in June
Due to a continued budget shortfall of about $5 million, TARC is proposing more service cuts beginning in June. TARC is considering eliminating service on up to 20 routes and reducing service on another 17 routes. This is going to affect a lot of people. For more info on proposed route changes, visit TARC’s website at http://www.ridetarc.org/news.asp?ArticleID=395. TARC is soliciting public comment on the proposals through March 11. If you wish to discuss the proposed changes and get more info on how you will be affected, attend one of six public hearings around town. The times and locations of these hearings are also on the website above. Feedback can also be sent to TARC by clicking “Contact Us” on their website, by calling 561-5112, or by mailing comments to TARC, Union Station, 1000 W. Broadway, Louisville, KY 40203. Let TARC know if you need information in an alternative format or if you need an interpreter for a public hearing. The more TARC hears that a particular route is needed, the more likely they are to keep that route. So, find out if you are affected and give TARC your input on these proposed changes.
