If you’re trying to avoid finding parking for BLINK, Metro and TANK have you covered. Leadership from Metro, TANK and BLINK, the regional light and art show, announced a new partnership that will provide free rides and direct access to Park and Ride locations for this year’s immersive art experience.
“Offering a cost-effective and efficient option to attend the event was a huge priority for BLINK 2022,” said Justin Brookhart, Executive Director of BLINK. “Our amazing transit agencies providing free rides will enhance the BLINK experience for attendees from across the region.”
Metro and TANK will offer fare-free rides beginning at 6 p.m. on October 13-16. All rides on both transportation networks, including direct routes to BLINK, will be free.
Direct routes to BLINK will be available via four Park and Ride locations. The Park and Ride locations will drop off attendees at the Riverfront Transit Center for both Metro and TANK riders. Tank will also offer service to the Covington Transit Center.
The four Park and Rides will be located at:
- Northern Kentucky University
- Cincinnati State
- Cincinnati Public Schools Board of Education
- UC Digital Futures Building
“TANK is excited for the return of BLINK and our partnership to once again provide shuttle service to this amazing art experience for the people of our communities,” said TANK interim General Manager Gina Douthat. “BLINK is best enjoyed as a pedestrian, which is why we found it essential to offer free rides to everyone.”
BLINK Executive Director Justin Brookhart said installations this year will run from the Covington riverfront and connect with Roebling Point, downtown Covington, and stretch to the central business district.
