TANK Taking Comment on Proposed Route Changes

An Important Message on Proposed Changes to TANK Routes 

From Andrew Aiell, TANK General Manager

Over the last five years, TANK has expanded service to meet the needs of some of the growing areas of the Northern Kentucky community. At the same time, TANK has continued the practice of monitoring ridership on all routes, with an annual detailed review. While some areas have seen increases in demand, other areas and routes have seen decreases in ridership and overall demand for bus service.

In order to stay within a reasonable budget moving forward, TANK is proposing the following service reductions. These reductions affect the routes that have declined in ridership over the last several years and the changes are consistent with the Network Study long range plan that TANK completed in 2012.

We are now accepting public comments on the proposed service changes. Public comment can be made in person at a scheduled meeting, by phone or by email. All comment, regardless of method it was received, will be delivered to the TANK Board of Directors prior to a final decision being made. The final set of recommendations adopted by the Board would go into to effect in August 2017.

Details on the proposed adjustments can be found here:

Public comment on the changes may be made through email, phone calls, or attendance at public meetings listed below.
