Get Involved!

Come to the Groundbreaking Event!Sept. 25 from 12 - 2 p.m. The groundbreaking event will take place on Sept. 25 from 12 - 2 p.m. on the future site of the transit center at the southeast corner of Washington and Delaware. Large scale renderings and interactive exhibits will offer the public insight to what the transit center will offer passengers.

At 1:00 p.m. there will be a short program with remarks by Mayor Greg Ballard and other key stakeholders followed by the ceremonial groundbreaking.
Go See the Gallery! To showcase the Downtown Transit Center (DTC), we've installed an interactive gallery at The Hall (Old City Hall) so the public can view the designs and information about the project. Located at 202 N. Alabama, The Hall (Old City Hall) has been recently repurposed by the Department of Metropolitan Development as a hub for city planning efforts.

The Gallery is open to the public on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Transit Center Facts

Washington St Final The DTC will be a hub for public transit. It will include a large public indoor waiting area as well as bus bays with canopies to protect passengers from the elements. With its close proximity to the heart of downtown, the Cultural Trail and Bike Hub, the DTC will serve pedestrians, cyclists and bus riders. IndyGo and the City of Indianapolis are also exploring possible bike and car share facilities at the transit center to increase multi-modal transit.

There will also be a small retail space available for possibly a café, coffee shop, and car or bike share office!
This Location was Selected Because: 
  • Its closeness to the current “downtown loop,” which most IndyGo routes serve  is ideal.
  • A site this large with proximity to the center of downtown was unrivaled.
  • The land was donated by the City of Indianapolis. Because it was already  publicly owned, tax payer dollars were  able to be stretched further.

Nw Corner Final IndyGo Routes and Downtown Stops Could be Affected
To best serve the transit center, downtown routes and stops may have to be modified to best accommodate transfers. In late 2014, IndyGo is collaborating with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization to update the Comprehensive Operational Analysis (COA) which will focus on downtown routing changes and new services to improve circulation in the core of the city. The study will also examine locations for additional transfer facilities outside of downtown.

Overall Final Downtown Traffic Will be Affected

Just like any major construction project, the transit center will temporarily disrupt traffic near the site with lane closures and delays. Permanent changes to traffic flow around the Downtown Transit Center, mainly Delaware and Alabama Streets, will be made once the center is in operation. IndyGo and the Department of Public Works will collaborate to create the best traffic pattern.
The Project Will be Environmentally Friendly

The transit center is applying for a LEED Silver Certification, meaning green building practices will be employed, reducing the environmental impact of the project during construction and operation. Some green features of the Downtown Transit Center include:

  • Solar power in the canopies
  • Storm water management & curbside rain gardens
  • Energy efficient lighting and HVAC
