TANK to Redesign Bus System in Northern Kentucky

The Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky (TANK) is undertaking what it calls a "system redesign study", and the public is invited to provide feedback and comments.

TANK staff members and their consultant team will present a brief presentation to explain the redesign process and goals of the study. Outside of the presentation times, participants will be able to view exhibit boards and bus network maps at several stations. 

Staff and consultants will be available to discuss the study and answer questions. 

Comments and desired outcomes will be captured via a brief survey and comment cards at each station.\

The public meeting is at the Covington Career Center (1324 Madison Avenue, Covington) on Thursday, August 29 between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. The venue is located on TANK Route #7.
