Beginning January 2023: IndyGo Recognizes Two Service Areas
IndyGo is taking a significant step to ensure a more reliable, convenient and enhanced rider experience for paratransit users. Beginning January 2023, the Beyond the ADA Policy takes effect to recognize two service areas. This includes the ADA-mandated area (3/4 of a mile on either side of existing bus routes) and a new area known as IndyGo Access Premium. This premium service offers a new same-day service option as availability allows and premium pricing.Learn more

IndyGo’s Paratransit Service
IndyGo Access is a reservation-based, shared-ride service. IndyGo Access provides services to those who meet the criteria established by the U.S. Department of Transportation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990.
Although federal regulation requires service within only ¾ of a mile, IndyGo Access operates throughout all of Marion County, seven days a week and with the same hours as local service.
It’s important to understand that an individual’s age, inability to drive a car, or level of personal inconvenience or discomfort are not automatically qualifying factors for eligibility. IndyGo Access eligibility is a pragmatic decision about how best to meet an individual’s transportation needs, not a medical authorization.
IndyGo Access service costs riders $3.50 per one-way trip. To use IndyGo Access, you must apply for eligibility.
IndyGo Access Eligibility
If riding fixed route transit service causes periodic or regular undue physical challenge for you, you may qualify for paratransit service. Eligibility is based not only on the presence of a disability or the use of a mobility aid, but on the effect the disability has on the applicant’s functional ability to board, ride, and disembark independently from a fully accessible local transit vehicle. The accessibility of the regular local transit service and the environmental and architectural barriers within the service area are also considered.
Applications for IndyGo Access service are available online or via mail by calling our IndyGo Customer Care Center at 317-635-3344. Applications are available in various formats, including Braille, Spanish, and large print. See below for details.

Once the eligibility Assessment Team receives your Personal Information and Medical/Professional Verification forms, they will contact you to schedule an in-person interview. All interviews must be scheduled in advance. If needed, IndyGo can provide transportation on an IndyGo Access shared-ride vehicle to and from the interview location at no cost to you.
At the in-person interview, an Assessment Team Member will review your application and discuss the disability/health condition that affects your functional ability to use IndyGo’s local transit service.
Notification of Eligibility
IndyGo will determine your eligibility within 21 days of your in-person interview and notify you of its decision in writing. Once you are approved, you’ll receive an IndyGo Access ID and password, and you will be able to call 317-917-8747 to make reservations for IndyGo Access as you need it.
If IndyGo has not made an eligibility determination within 21 days, you will be granted temporary eligibility until a decision is made. If it is then determined you are not eligible for IndyGo’s Acess service, you may appeal the decision. Information on the appeal process will be given to you with your notice of ineligibility.
