In 2014, the Indiana General Assembly allowed some Central Indiana counties to dedicate an income tax up to 0.25% for mass transit. This came after 8 years of planning and collecting feedback from residents on what they wanted from an enhanced transit system in central Indiana.
On November 8, 2016, Marion County voters voted in favor of a tax to improve the city’s transit system.
At the January 9, 2017 City County Council meeting, Proposal 3, a measure to enact a tax dedicated to transit, was introduced by Council President Maggie Lewis. The full council voted for final adoption on Monday, February 27, 2017. Read the press release for more information.
