Skip the traffic and take transit to Louder Than Life this year! TARC will be joining PARC (Parking Authority of River City) this year to offer a great option for concertgoers headed to Louder Than Life (September 21-24). TARC bus service from downtown to the festivals can save time and money and help advance regional sustainability! Click HERE for more info.
