Capital Plan

Over the next 5 years, IndyGo will implement the approved the 2018 – 2022 Capital Plan structured to support the increased service frequency, hours, and network design as part of the Marion County Transit Plan.

How Did We Get Here?

In 2014, the Indiana General Assembly allowed some Central Indiana counties to dedicate an income tax up to 0.25% for mass transit. On November 8, 2016, Marion County voters voted in favor of a tax to improve the city’s transit system. At the January 9, 2017 City County Council meeting, Proposal 3, a measure to enact a tax dedicated to transit, was introduced by Council President Maggie Lewis. The full council voted for final adoption on Monday, February 27, 2017. Read the press release for more information.
