Bus super stops coming to newly rebuilt Delaware St.


Bus super stops coming to newly rebuilt Delaware St.

An upgraded bus route is coming to a downtown Indianapolis street that is also receiving improvements. 

The super stops will run along Delaware St, a stretch of roadway undergoing a $5 million overhaul. The City partnered with IndyGo to include the new transit option along the busy corridor. 

IndyGo Director of Communications Carrie Black said the super stops will be an improvement.

“It’s really kind of a hybrid between bus rapid transit,” Black said, “so think part Purple Line but then part regular fixed bus route system.”

There will be a dedicated bus lane along Delaware Street from the Julia Carson Transit Center to Vermont St.  Black said that will improve travel times.

“That’s going to allow them to flow more smoothly and more quickly,” Black said.

The stations will also be updated, with new ticketing and arrival technology.

The project is expected to be complete in summer of 2022.
