We may be relocating to Louisville in the near future and considering places to search for a house. What would the actual travel time be from the La Grange area to downtown? Thanks!

probably between 20 minutes and a half hour, depending on what exit you're getting off at for "downtown", and how traffic is.

LaGrange is located very close to I-71 exit 22. Downtown is exit 0. The speed limit is 70mph from exit 22 to mp 5, 65mph to mp 4, and 55 to downtown. I always give myself 45 minutes from my office in downtown to any event in downtown. 95% of time, I am 10 minutes early.

I think it would be pretty hard to drive from La Grange to downtown in 20 minutes unless you were speeding.

Cat, you are correct! However, I have come close. Of course, it was 5am on Sunday morning. It is mathematically possible.

The Transit Authority of River City (TARC) currently runs 3 or 4 express bus service routes to LaGrange, Buckner, & Crestwood for "Park & TARC" offering commuters a good alternative.

I think that is exactly what I would have said. If you give yourself 45 minutes, absent an accident or road construction, you will be giving yourself a little cushion.

Thanks to everyone for their comments. We may be relocating to the area in the near future and will be looking in the Oldham County area for homes. I'm not sure how far out we want to look and wanted an idea on the drive time from La Grange and downtown Louisville. Thanks again for all the information.

Nick, my wife and I just took the afternoon to escort a wonderful family from Ohio on a person tour of Oldham County. We looked at several schools, watched two trains roll through LaGrange, drove by places such as Cedar Lake Lodge, Ballardsville, Briar Hill, Centerfield, and Buckner.

It was such a dreary day, but we had lots of fun.

Is this utilized very much? Here in Johnson County, KS, there are plenty of buses that will take commuters to downtown Kansas City, but very few people use them.

It looks like we will be making the move down there. Now comes the hard part...selling our house and finding a new one.
