Mass transit helps people get to work, school, healthcare, and other vital places. By connecting workers and employers, transit strengthens our economy. Older residents, people with disabilities, and families without cars gain opportunities and independence. Everyone wins with a more convenient, competitive city – improving mass transit raises the whole community’s quality of life.
The Marion County Transit Plan allows IndyGo to deliver frequent, all-day service to more residents, businesses and neighborhoods, cutting wait and travel times and adding new rapid transit lines over the next five years.
The plan makes Indy a top contender for new investment, jobs, visitors and events against other major metro areas. Indianapolis is a world-class city – we deserve a better transit system.
On November 8 2016, nearly 60 percent of voters in Marion County voted 'yes' to approve a local income tax increase to create a dedicated funding source and fully fund the Marion County Transit Plan.
