The Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky (TANK) is the public transit system serving the Northern Kentucky suburbs of Cincinnati, Ohio located in Kenton County, Boone County and Campbell County. TANK was founded in 1973 when the privately funded Greenline Bus Company ceased operation, and voters in the three counties elected to publicly fund the transit system.
Currently TANK operates a fleet of 100 fixed route buses and 25 demand response vehicles.
While TANK's primary service area is the three Northern Kentucky counties, all TANK routes also connect with Downtown Cincinnati where riders can transfer to vehicles operated by the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority if necessary. Although the two systems are separate, the TANK and SORTA work to make transfers between systems easy and even sell a joint pass.
As of January 1, 2012, TANK charges $1.50 for non-express routes, and $2 for express routes (marked with X at end of bus route). Students in Kindergarten through 12th grade on school days riding to and from school only have to pay $1. TANK also has passes: a monthly pass (unlimited) for $53, an express monthly pass (unlimited) for $70, a METRO/TANK monthly non-express pass (unlimited, METRO fare zone 1) for $105. The express combined pass is $115. Also, TANK has a 10 ride pass for $13.50, and a 10 ride express pass for $18. Beginning in summer of 2010 TANK upgraded their fare system and passes that were valid for a calendar month were replaced with passes good for 30 consecutive days from first use. Also, other pass options were introduced including a 1-day pass. For a complete list of fare options, click here.
