IndyGo Seeks Public Comment On Route Changes

As part of an effort to improve service by 70 percent, IndyGo will overhaul its route system... apart from the new and planned rapid transit lines. The public has a chance to weigh in on this first major change in decades.

For over 70 years, IndyGo bus service has operated on a spoke and hub model with a center transit station and routes branching off.

Director of Public Affairs Lesley Gordon says the buses will move to a grid based network to provide better connectivity.

It allows for easier transfers, especially if you are not in the core of Marion County, and it allows for more frequency," says Gordon. 

A series of public meetings on the topic are being held this week around Indianapolis. 

"Because we want to get your feedback in how you use them and make sure we’re not impacting the people that need access the most," says Gordon. 

People can also submit opinions online. The changes are planned for this summer.
