ⓘ Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky
The Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky 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. ATE Management, founded by Greenlines owners, provided management. ATE and its successor First Transit provided management until 2010, when TANK became self-managed.
Currently the tank has a fleet of 100 fixed-route buses and demand of 25 vehicles.
While the tanks of the primary service areas of the three Northern Kentucky counties, all tank routes also connect with the downtown Cincinnati, where riders can transfer vehicle managed by the South West regional Transport authority of the state of Ohio if necessary. Although these two systems are separate, the tank and a bit of work to transfer between systems easily and even sell the joint transmission.
