|IndyGo Routes and Downtown Stops Will be Affected
To best serve the transit center, downtown routes and stops will be modified to best accommodate transfers. In September 2014, IndyGo kicked off IndyGo Forward, an in depth planning study on how the bus system operates today and how best to plan for the future of transit in Indianapolis. To take advantage of the new transit center, we’ve identified opportunities to make the transit network more useful for spontaneous travel, which means making service more frequent. These opportunities have been turned into a proposed 2015 network which is currently in the public comment process. In March, final route change recommendations will be presented to the public and the IndyGo board is expected to adopt the changes.
|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 are collaborating 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:
