Hoosiers have a new way to avoid the expense, hassle and pollution of driving to campus. TARC is launching an express route from Sellersburg today. Instead of wasting time and money stuck in traffic, commuters can take Route 65X free with UofL ID from a park and ride lot at Ivy Tech Community College (I-65 Exit 9) and enjoy TARC’s efficient new coaches with free Wi-Fi, outlets and overhead storage. The service stops at Health Sciences Center (Chestnut and Jackson) and connects to other TARC routes (i.e. Route 18 to Belknap Campus). Click here for full details on TARC’s new Route 65X – Sellersberg Express.
