|IndyGo and the Children's Bureau, Inc. have partnered together to bring supportive resources and immediate help to youth in distress. |
Through Project Safe Place, our buses have become a "rolling" safe place where kids can turn to if they need help.
All of our buses feature the highly recognizable Safe Place logo and our bus drivers are trained to provide immediate assistance to children 17 and under.
Hundreds of children ride IndyGo buses everyday, and hundreds more see them in their neighborhoods. Therefore, it's important for us to bring a refuge to children who need emergency help. IndyGo drivers are the "eyes and ears" on our city streets, so adding Project Safe Place as a responsibility reinforces the important role our company plays in the community beyond transporting an average of 9 million passengers annually.
