Get on the Bus with us!
The working class has been continuously denied freedom of movement. As socialists, we hope to help change that. Will you join us? Sign up to receive email and/or mobile updates from Louisville DSA about the Get On The Bus campaign!
For far too long, Louisville leaders have not prioritized public transportation. The current funding model for the Transit Authority of River City (TARC) implemented in 1974 is archaic and insufficient. TARC needs adequate and consistent funding to make it a reliable and effective service for its riders, many of whom are going to work or school. These riders—primarily working class and people of color—are experiencing service cuts and delays, waiting at uncovered, poorly marked stops for buses—if they show up at all!—with outdated technology and inadequate accessibility, driven by underpaid drivers. Louisville Metro residents need and deserve more.
HELP US DEMAND THAT THE MAYOR’S OFFICE AND LOUISVILLE METRO COUNCIL “GET ON THE BUS” AND PERMANENTLY ADD FUNDING FOR TARC TO THE CITY BUDGET.
The “Get On The Bus” campaign (GOTB) is a joint effort of the Louisville chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America (LDSA), in close coordination with ATU local 1447, to apply sustained pressure on Louisville Metro Council and the Mayor's office to make good on their promises to prioritize public transit, as outlined in Mayor Greenberg’s 2023 Economic Development Strategic Plan, TARC’s Long Range Plan 2022, and Louisville Metro’s Plan 2040.
