Darren’s Transit Map of Louisville

Not an official TARC document. Provided without warranty.


This transit map of Louisville contains GTFS route data from TARC, street map data from OpenStreetMap, and my own markup. It’s meant to be useful, not pretty. Graphic design is not my passion. I’ve created it for a number of reasons:

  • to learn Inkscape,
  • to have a map I can print out and more easily annotate,
  • to see where all the stops are,
  • and as a hobby.

Enjoy this map, and happy TARCin’!

  • Someone at K Composite Media did this subway-style map. I’m so used to traditional street maps of Louisville so this one's actually a little mind-bending.
  • This map showing one man's idea of what Louisville’s transit system could be in the future exists, in the form of another subway-style map.
