The city of Covington is located on Kentucky’s northern border, just south of the Ohio city of Cincinnati. Covington is what is referred to by the Kentucky state legislature as a 2nd class city—the state ranks cities in tiers based on their populations, and Covington falls into the 2nd class, which is 20,000 to 99,999 residents. Covington is listed as having 40,640 residents as of the 2010 census, making it one of the top five most populated cities in the entire state of Kentucky.
A significant amount of people in the city of Covington get around by the use of the Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky, or TANK for short. TANK services both Northern Kentucky as well as Southern Ohio, specifically the city of Cincinnati. TANK has over one hundred buses and twenty five vehicles that operate on demand to serve seniors and the disabled. TANK’s fleet of vehicles makes it one of the more extensive busing systems in the region, especially for one that is publically funded.
