TANK Riverfest Service

Heading to Riverfest this year?  Avoid the hassle and head straight to the riverfront on one of our Riverfest Shuttles.

On Sunday, September 1, TANK will provide Riverfest Shuttles from Northern Kentucky University (NKU) Lot E (located on Kenton Dr. on campus) to the Newport flood wall.

Fare for the Riverfest Shuttle is $6 round trip. Children (45" and under) ride free. Tickets will be sold under the tent in Lot E. Tickets must be purchased prior to boarding the bus.

Buses will begin leaving NKU at 4 pm, with the last bus leaving at 7:15 pm. Buses will operate approximately every 10-15 minutes, depending upon passenger demand.


Return service to NKU will begin immediately upon completion of the fireworks. Buses will load on the I-471 ramp going south, right across from the Port of Entry.

The last bus will leave 30 minutes after the conclusion of the fireworks.

For additional information about TANK’s Riverfest Park and Ride service or the Southbank Shuttle, please call TANK’s information line at (859) 331-TANK or chat with us on the web at


Anyone wanting to cross the river to Cincinnati should take the Southbank Shuttle. The Southbank Shuttle will be operating beginning at 10 a.m. on the day of Riverfest and will ONLY run until 6 p.m. The Southbank Shuttle will stop running at 6:00 p.m. and WILL NOT resume until the next day.
