|Southeast Corner of Washington & Delaware
Opening Late 2015
|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.
|Take a Survey||Many decisions regarding the transit center, routing and downtown stops have not yet been made. Help guide the final outcomes by completing this survey. You will be entered to win a 31-Day Pass for your participation!|
|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.|

|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:
|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.
|How Much Will the Transit Center Cost?|
|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:
