The Southbank Shuttle is Back!

TANK’s Southbank Shuttle Trolley is back! Beginning on Saturday, August 20th, the trolley buses will once again be “clang-clanging” their way through the riverfront cities of Covington, Newport and downtown Cincinnati.

In March 2020, COVID impacts forced the temporary halt of service, with operator resources a primary challenge, even after pandemic restrictions eased. After a more than two-year hiatus, TANK has brought staffing to the levels needed to bring the Trolley service back.

TANK Statement, Gina Douthat, spokesperson: “TANK’s trolleys will be back in business on August 20, just in time for the end of summer and fall fun in the riverfront cities, including Blink in October. We are very excited to bring this frequent and easy to use service back – for the hotels, entertainment venues and tourists, the Shuttle is a great way for people that don’t want to fuss with driving, navigating, and parking to enjoy all that our riverfront and downtown areas have to offer. It’s time to bring people back to our riverfront and downtown destinations!” Look for fun promotions this fall! Click HERE for the route map.
