Proposed Changes for TANK


Many people rely on the public transportation to get to where they need to go. There are some proposed changes that have been suggested to the Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky. Fort Thomas Matters wanted to educate our readers on the changes and provide you the locations where you can voice your opinion.


In Newport and Campbell County, they propose that the #25 bus’ route at Village Green Park and Ride to the south, and in downtown Cincinnati to the North would be terminated. Service to the Alexandria Park and Ride will be discontinued. Service to Covington and Ft. Wright Hub will be provided by route 33.  The frequency of the #25 bus will be every 30 minutes during peak-time and every 60 minutes during off-peak time.

Closer to home, the #20 bus in South Newport will be eliminated due to low ridership. Routes 12, 16 and 25 will service the area.

There will be a new cross-county service that will operate along I-275. It will provide a direct transportation line between Northern Kentucky University and Florence. The new east west “cross-county” service will have north south connections at NKU, the Ft. Wright Hub, Dixie Highway, Crestview Town Center and the Florence Hub.
