Changes coming to public transportation in Louisville

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer will roll out some changes for the city's bus system and the Big Four pedestrian bridge on Monday afternoon.

A four year plan called eTran, which stands for Enhanced Transit, will put a $30 million investment to work for TARC bringing new buses and other changes and improvements.

Mayor Fischer will also activate a new cross walk signal near the Big Four bridge. The hybrid signal is said to be the first of its kind in Kentucky. It was designed to improve the safety of pedestrians crossing River Road near the bridge and Tumbleweed.

The Mayor's detailed announcement will take place at 1:30 p.m. Monday, September 23 at Waterfront Park.
