Getting to jobs, the movies, learning activities and other fun events around Louisville is affordable and easy for young people with the TARC Summer Youth Pass.

The pass costs $30 and is available to anyone 6 – 19 years old. With the pass, youths can take unlimited TARC rides on all routes from June 1 to August 31.

“We encourage young people and employers to consider the Summer Youth Pass as a viable tool to access summer jobs via transit,” said J. Barry Barker, Executive Director of TARC.  “Coupled with Metro Louisville’s Cultural Pass, presented by Churchill Downs, both passes give youth the freedom to learn, play and explore all summer long.”

By taking public transportation, young people gain self-confidence and become more independent, important skills for lifelong success, Barker said. All TARC buses are equipped with bicycle racks, free Wi-Fi and are ADA accessible.

The pass can be ordered from TARC’s website, www.ridetarc.org, or purchased at the following locations:

  • Union Station, 1000 W. Broadway
  • Nia Center, 2900 W. Broadway
  • All Fifth Third Banks
  • Louisville Free Public Library, 3rd & York

To order by mail, send a check or money order for $30, with your name, address and phone number, to SUMMER YOUTH PASS; c/o TARC cashier; 1000 W. Broadway; Louisville, KY  40203.
