INDIANAPOLIS (September 13, 2012) – IndyGo is proud to partner with Indy Jazz Fest, happening now through this Sunday, September 16 at various locations throughout the city. This partnership is a result of IndyGo’s Community Collaborations Program, an in-kind sponsorship package designed to support local initiatives and events.
“Our intention is to build awareness of transit access within our community,” says Samantha Cross, vice president of IndyGo Business Development. “So many people see our buses traversing city streets, but often are unaware of the routing and key designations within the various routes. We work with organizations on transit lines, providing them a broader audience reach and the tools to promote other forms of access other than driving.”
The Community Collaboration program is versatile, but the fundamental idea is to share IndyGo’s communication toolbox to promote an organization or event and in return, receive public recognition from the partner through website links, logo recognition, admission passes and event participation.
The Indy Jazz Fest kicked off on Monday and the annual event brings live music to several venues throughout the community. This weekend, the activities close with great artist line-ups at Opti-Park, off College Avenue near the Arts Center of Indianapolis. Route 18 serves College Avenue north of Broad Ripple and Route 17 serves Broad Ripple, intersecting with the Monon Trail.
Concert goers should check IndyGo.net or call 317.635.3344 (open weekdays and until noon on Saturday) for trip planning and schedules to and from the event. Single rides on IndyGo are only $1.75. Depending on service availability, some patrons may choose to bike and ride and riding tips and instructions are also available online.
