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.
Begin Using the Transit Center in Late 2015! Timeline
New Interior The DTC has Plenty of Amenities to Offer!
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.
Busbays 2 IndyGo Routes and Downtown Stops Will be Affected

All downtown routes will change in 2015 to accommodate the transit center. The IndyGo Forward planning initiative has identified these changes and other opportunities to make the transit network more useful for spontaneous travel system wide, which means making service more frequent. To review the proposed changes and give your feedback, attend one of our upcoming public meetings at the Central Library: 

  • Monday, Dec. 8: 6 - 8 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Dec. 10: 1 - 8 p.m.
How Much Will the Transit Center Cost? Equation
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
