IndyGo recently announced upgrades designed to improve mass transit service. Construction on “Super Stops” will start with repaving Delaware Street and is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2021. Faith Chadwick is the Public Information Officer for IndyGo. She said the remodeled stops will be more convenient for passengers
“Super Stops are basically a significantly improved bus stop that offer new amenities for transit riders such as ticket vending machines, real time signage a covered waiting area and a slightly elevated platform to make getting on the bus a little easier,” Chadwick said.
The Delaware Street changes include removing below-ground streetcar tracks.
“Over time, those have the potential to cause some issues to the existing pavement so as part of this project, in addition to improving the roadway surface for riders, they’ll actually be removing those street car tracks,” Chadwick said.
To improve traffic flow and rider safety, a section of Fort Wayne Avenue will also be converted to two-way, between Delaware and Alabama streets. The cost of the project will be $3.5 million. Indygo plans to complete the upgrades by the end of 2021.
