New 2x Extension Connects Florence Hub
Exciting changes are coming for Northern Kentucky residents, that will help them better connect to CVG using public transit with TANK.
Starting August 12th, getting to the Airport will be a lot easier for NKY residents. TANK’s 2X Airporter route currently connects downtown Cincinnati to CVG, and runs every 30 minutes, from 4am-1am, 7 days a week. When TANK service adjustments take effect in August, this route will be extended south to terminate at the Florence Hub transit center on Mall Rd. and will have intermediate stops on Turfway Rd. at the Houston Rd. interchange.
People living along the Dixie Highway corridor (Florence, Elsmere, Erlanger, Crestview Hills, Lakeside Park, Ft. Mitchell) will now be able to get to the Airport in about half the amount of time it takes today. Just catch a #1 or #42X to the Florence Hub to transfer to the 2X.
Today, it can take up to 2 hours for residents of Boone County looking to get to CVG, as they must take their local bus into downtown Cincinnati in order to take the 2X to the airport. This new connection in Florence was one of the most requested comments from TANK’s 2020 System Redesign Plan, and thanks to the completion of Wendell Ford Blvd., it is now possible.
