Discussion on IndyGo Blue Line in Indianapolis

Posted on 12/06/21

Blue Line

IndyGo is speeding toward the expansion of accessible and efficient bus rapid transit in Indianapolis.

AARP Indiana and other Transit Drives Indy coalition members want to keep transit supporters looped in on opportunities where you can make your voice heard.

Recently, several members of the Indiana State Legislature asked IndyGo to analyze the impacts that any reconfiguration of the first segment of the Blue Line (Holt Rd. to the Indianapolis International Airport) would have on the project budget and the planned infrastructure improvements.

Indianapolis-area residents are invited to join a virtual public meeting to learn about the findings from the analysis on Tuesday, December 28, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

The Blue Line will run through the city from the Indianapolis International Airport to Cumberland.

“Transit in Indianapolis is on the cusp of a transformational change,” Addison Pollock, AARP Indiana Director of Community Engagement, said. “The Blue Line will do so much to connect Hoosiers of all ages to employment opportunities, necessities, and their community.

“This will give all Hoosiers—including those 50-plus— greater access to their own city – especially if they can’t or don’t want to drive.”

You can attend the virtual public meeting to preview the current Blue Line design, as well as learn about impacts of proposed changes. We encourage you to ask questions and provide any feedback you might have.

IndyGo has held more than 120 meetings regarding the Blue Line since 2014. Register to attend this upcoming meeting here.* The Blue Line will be the third and longest BRT line planned to improve transit service in Indianapolis. The project is more than just improved bus transit— it will add an estimated $220 million of investment to the Washington Street corridor. This investment includes 17.5 miles of street resurfacing, 10.5 miles of new or replaced sidewalks, 3.3 miles of new or refreshed crosswalks, and significantly enhanced pedestrian and vehicular safety in the corridor.
