IndyGo buses are back on city streets after service was suspended due to the storms.

The transit company shut down Monday and Tuesday.

President Mike Terry says that’s rare and points to the severity of the weather.

"There are times when maybe we start bringing service in early, maybe we are down to a few routes and the conditions had started to deteriorate with late evening snows," he said.  "But, I'd say the blizzard of 1978 was the last time service was suspended."

IndyGo’s full fleet is back on the roads, but Terry says there are still some issues.

"We are experiencing delays on a number of our routes," he said.  "Mostly because there is heavy traffic with people out moving slow.  But, we are out running."

He says the decision to suspend service came Sunday and was based on ensuring safety for drivers and passengers.
