CART has been advocating for Louisville’s transit development since 1992 and this program continues our long history bringing relevant and timely information to forefront of the pubic consciousness.   Our advocacy led to the TARC T-2 Study for Louisville’s first Light Rail Line in the 1990’s.  That study was shelved to fund the Bridges Project.

Even though the Bridges Project will consume most of Louisville’s transportation dollars for the next 40 years, there is much that can be done to improve transit, mobility, and air quality for our community.   But to do that will require persistent and coordinated work with other citizen groups and government agencies.

As a result of CART’s research, transportation emissions and energy demand affecting climate change have become our focus. Whether Louisville ever adopts and builds efficient mass transit systems, the community is now entering a period of dangerous climate change. Both developed and developing nations have loaded the atmosphere with greenhouse gases and continue to release high levels of fossil fuel emissions.
CART’s work to advocate for low emissions, energy efficient mass transit is now more relevant and more necessary than ever. However, if transportation policy does not change in our community, there is still a critical need to advance the education on the looming planetary emergency of climate change.
JOIN CART and work with others who clearly understand the need to reduce fossil fuel emissionsand adopt sustainable energy use cultural and infrastructure changes.
