TARC offering special service to St. James Court Art Show
$6 per carload covers parking and bus service
September 21, 2012
TARC is again offering public transportation from downtown Louisville to the St. James Court Art Show Friday, Oct. 5 through Sunday, Oct. 7. Click here to view the St. James Court Art Show brochure.
“As popular as St. James is, on a nice day finding a parking space near the event area is a challenge,” said TARC Executive Director J. Barry Barker. “We’re encouraging the public to go downtown and let us take them there.”
TARC’s buses will leave PARC’s Brown Hotel garage on Third at Broadway every 15 minutes on Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. They will run every 10 minutes on Saturday and Sunday, beginning at 9:30 a.m. until 6:10 p.m. on Saturday and 5:10 p.m. on Sunday.
The buses will deliver passengers to Second and Hill for a short walk to the St. James Court Art Show. The cost is $6 per carload, which covers parking and the bus service. Before boarding the bus, patrons will be issued a pass that will guarantee them return service to the garage - and are urged to hold onto those passes while at the fair.
Art show patrons can also ride the fare-free trolleys downtown. The Fourth Street Trolley will connect visitors with the First Friday Trolley Hop on Main and Market Streets, Fourth Street Live and other downtown entertainment venues on Friday, Oct. 5.
Passengers may also board buses to and from the art fair at any stop along the route, including an additional stop at 2nd and Breckinridge and another at 2nd and Hill. The fare for passengers boarding along the route is $1.75.
Routes #2, #4 and #27 serve stops near the festival area.
