LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- TARC is expanding the number of routes where its new eTran commuter buses will be available.
Beginning Monday, five of the new buses will run on the 66x-Mt. Washington-Shepherdsville Express and the 67x-Oldham County Express.
The buses feature free Wi-Fi, power charging stations for smartphones and other devices, and overhead storage.
Ten other eTran buses are already being used on trips between downtown Louisville and southern Indiana. The Ohio River Bridges Project provided $9.5 million that TARC used to buy 21 new buses.
It's all part of a larger program in which TARC uses buses that are environmentally-friendly, upgrades bus stops, and provides more Park'n'Ride locations. It has already established a new mobile website with trip planning by Google, maps and schedules, and rider alerts.
