IndyGo shows its appreciation of U.S. veterans with its newest bus.
The IndyGo bus is red, white and blue with imagery depicting service members and the military branches.
“We wanted to do something that paid tribute to all of the veterans here throughout the city of Indianapolis, when they see that bus, they can feel that special honor and recognition,” IndyGo Communications Director Carrie Black said.
IndyGo unveiled the bus near the American Legion Mall and the Indiana War Memorial. During the event local veterans could register for an IndyGo Veterans Pass which is good for free fixed route and rapid transit rides all year after an initial $2 fee.
Veterans honorably discharged may apply for the pass any time at the Julia M. Carson Transit Center. Applicants must bring a photo ID and proof of veteran status. More details can be found on the IndyGo website.
