Designate five Post-Thunder stops to help passengers get home

Louisville, KY (April 13, 2023) – TARC in partnership with Humana will be offering fare-free service for the full day of Thunder Over Louisville, Saturday, April 22.

In an effort to get people home as quickly as possible, five Post-Thunder Boarding Stops have been designated within downtown Louisville—most within blocks of the waterfront. These stops will be available for passengers to board immediately following the event, and will be the only downtown boarding options (please see the below list, and attached map).

An additional 68 buses will also be added to Saturday’s service to improve frequency of buses on the street, and better serve the expected increase of passengers to the event. A shuttle service from Shawnee Park to Union Station will also run throughout the day to accommodate an expected increase of passengers heading downtown.

Passengers traveling on TARC to and from Southern Indiana are cautioned that buses on cross-river routes #71 (Jeffersonville-Louisville-New Albany), #72 (Clarksville), #73 (West Louisville-River Ridge), and #74 (Chamberlain Ln-River Ridge) will not make return trips to Indiana after 8 p.m. due to bridge closures. However, regular non-cross-river Indiana service will continue.

Please note:
– Closer to the start of the event, some regular routes may be delayed or detoured due to police barricades and heavy pedestrian traffic. Please plan your trip ahead of time, and know your Post-Thunder Boarding Stop location before heading to the event.
– Due to the fare-free service being offered, passengers will not be able to load fare to their MyTARC cards on the bus.
