TARC offers apology in wake of TARC-3 service disruptions

Executive Director Randy Frantz answered questions from committee members about TARC’s transition to a new TARC-3 service.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Officials with TARC offered an apology in front of Metro Councilmembers during Tuesday’s Public Works committee meeting.

“We are not here to deny that we had some service disruptions February 2 to February 3. We did not serve the community as we should on those dates and we apologize for that,” Randy Frantz, assistant executive director, said.

Frantz answered questions from committee members about TARC’s transition to a new TARC-3 service.

A dispute between contracted drivers ultimately left some TARC-3 paratransit riders stranded with no service.

Less than two weeks later, TARC executive director Ferdinand Risco Jr. resigned amid accusations of sexual misconduct.

Interim director Laura Douglas commented on the controversy and the investigation.

“At this point what we are hearing from employees is of course their concerns associated with harassment, things that you have been reporting in the press, so we are zeroing in on that area, I don't think it's appropriate to call the entire place a mess,” she said,

Douglas says there's no set deadline for the investigation into the harassment.
