From the fine folks at the Transit Authority of River City (TARC):
TARC will provide service to Churchill Downs (700 Central Ave.) for the Kentucky Oaks and Derby on four routes that normally travel within walking distance of Churchill Downs.
Service will be available at the regularly scheduled times on all routes for the usual fare of $1.50. The following routes travel near Churchill Downs:
- Rt. #2 serves downtown, UofL and Louisville International Airport
- Rt. #4 serves downtown, Old Louisville, the South End and Iroquois Park area
- Rt. #6 serves downtown, Shively, Iroquois Park and Fairdale areas
- Rt. #29 serves St. Matthews, Highlands, UofL and Shively
TARC will follow designated detours away from track starting at about 4:30 p.m. on Oaks and Derby days. After the races, buses will pick people up at a different stop than where they were dropped off. The maps show where the bus drop-off and pick-up points will be. Non-Derby TARC riders will also be affected by the detours.
