I've never been on a bus in Louisville, and don't know anything about them. I noticed bus 23 seems to mostly go southeast on Bardstown Road from Broadway. It seems to go a fair distance on Bardstown road, but sometimes goes to Hikes Point and other such places.

When it goes to places such as Hikes Point, does it end up back on Bardstown Road to finish the rest of its regular route?

How can I tell which buses 23 go to Hikes Point, etc., if only some of them do? Should I get on just any bus 23, then transfer to one that goes to those places? Or should I wait for a bus 23 that goes to those places?

How much is the fare? Do they mostly want cash, including bills and coins? What else do they take?

Cas, coin, or prepaid card. Full price is $1.75 I think, but ask your driver. It is cheaper to buy the bulk cards online.

Yes and no...the route leaves Bardstown Rd at Bashford manor and goes to GE where it turns around....you an easily catch a northbound bus into the city if you wait at a stop on the northbound lanes of Bardstown Rd, north of Bashford Manor Lane (or stand in the eastbound lanes of Bashford Manor Lane). I am sure there is a good stop in front of Walmart/Target there.

The website has a very easy to use trip planner.

If your goal is to get to Hikes Lane and Bardstown Rd, the 17 is better:

Again, just use the trip planner. It is easy. In the city during peak hours, buses come every 15 mins. The further out and later/earlier you get, a bus might not come for an hour or more.

Thanks. I'm also wondering about other options than buses. Does Louisville have good taxis, Uber, etc.? What's the best brand of taxi? Or are they all about the same?

yes and yes. Uber, lyft, and multiple cab companies. Taxi 7 is the newest cab company and IMO the best. Uses all green hybrid cars.

My friend drives for an independent taxi company and is called Taxi Taxi. He's well known to assist people with disabilities.
