Just got back from Metro Council Budget, where there was a lively debate on transit options. Download the entertaining audio files:
Dear Metro Council Representative:
We urge you to act immediately to increase funding for TARC!
Three big transportation events occur on Monday June 16th:
1pm, TARC Board Room, Union Station: This is the board meeting where TARC is expected to vote in both the high rate cuts and the $2 million in cut service. They're busted and simply have no alternative. This is also where CART will formally ask TARC for a plan on how they would spend an additional source of revenue to increase operations.
5pm, Council Chambers, City Hall: They will hear a report from Barry Barker, executive director of TARC, about the fare increase and service cuts.
6pm, Downtown YMCA: Bicycling for Louisville will begin it's all-singing, all-dancing bicycle urban skills class. In cooperation with the YMCA, enrollment in this class also comes with four day passes to use the Y. Bicycling for Louisville has more information and a link to enroll online.
Barry Barker is to come before Metro Council's Transportation Subcommittee and speak on June 16th at 5pm. Details can be found at this city web page. The topic of discussion will be TARC fare increases and service cuts.
