INDIANAPOLIS – On Monday, July 4, IndyGo will operate on an amended holiday schedule, with additional outbound service from downtown at 11 p.m. to help get passengers home after the Donatos Downtown Freedom Blast.

IndyGo will also continue to offer free rides on all routes through July 4 to help riders adjust to the Transit Center opening and route changes. Normal fare will be required to ride the bus beginning Tuesday, July 5.

On July 4, all of the 17 routes that normally run on Sunday schedule will make one last outbound trip from the stop at Capitol Ave. and Market St. and from the stop at Ohio St. and Capitol Ave. at 11 p.m.

Officials are advising riders that IndyGo’s Quick Trip Planner and transit directions on Google Maps will not reflect the special schedule or detours due to street closures and special events. In the event the Freedom Blast is rained out, IndyGo will still operate the additional 11 p.m. trips.
