With the upcoming Kentucky Kingdom and Hurricane Bay opening, there will be no shortage of opportunity in Louisville for thrill rides and water park fun. Now, with a planned TARC service adjustments, it will be even easier for park patrons and employees to get to and from the parks while allowing visitors to avoid parking fees. This service change takes effect on Sunday, June 8, 2014, alongside a second minor schedule adjustment.
The #2-Second Street TARC route is being adjusted as follows:
The changes have been put into place to give a service option for employees and patrons of Kentucky Kingdom, which opens later this month. TARC riders should catch their bus at stops near Gate 2 and Gate 3 at the Kentucky Fairgrounds.
On Monday, June 9, a trip leaving Louisville International Airport will start at 8:54 a.m., which is 10 minutes later than the previous trip. That southbound trip from downtown will also leave 10 minutes later, at 9:25 a.m., from 5th and Market Street. Additionally, a new weekday trip leaving the airport at 7:12 p.m. will be added.
On Saturdays, new trips leaving 5th and Market at 10:15 a.m. and the airport at 9:12 p.m. will be added. On Sundays and holidays, new trips will be leaving 5th and Market at 10:15 a.m. and the airport at 7:12 p.m.
An unrelated schedule change is also being made to the #43-Poplar Level Road route:
