Going to NKY
This is just a quick follow-up on a previous post. I want to clarify where you should wait when you’re trying to get across the river from Downtown to Northern Kentucky. There are just a few places you can stand to get all or most lines crossing the river in a certain direction.
First, when you’re trying to go to Newport from Downtown, you can come here to catch the Shuttle, #11, #12, #16, or #25:
Make sure you get the shuttle going the correct direction! Both directions will pass by here, but they say on the sides where they’re going.
Going to Covington from Downtown, you want to wait here for any of the #1, #3, #5, #7, #11, #12, #16, #25, or #33 buses:
You won’t be waiting long here. All buses heading from Downtown to Covington will go through the transit center(pictured below) but many of them will go a bit beyond, so stay on if it’s going the right direction for you. Otherwise, you can hop off and walk.
Going from Covington to Downtown, you’re surest bet for a short wait is the Covington Transit Center, where you can catch anything, even an express line, so long as it’s going Downtown. Both directions go through here though, so ask the driver if you’re unsure which way they’re headed.
If you’re just going across the river and not too far beyond any of these should work for you. If you’re going further you’ll likely need to make sure you know exactly which line you’re waiting for and check a schedule.
