Open Door

Open Door BusIndyGo’s paratransit service, Open Door serves the needs of customers who, because of a disability, are unable to use IndyGo’s local service and who meet the criteria established by the U.S. Department of Transportation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. It’s an origin to destination, reservation-based, shared ride service.
