IndyGo Transit Ambassadors

IndyGo is looking for energetic and enthusiastic volunteers to join our Transit Ambassador team.

If you believe mobility is an important part of the Indianapolis community, here’s your chance to help IndyGo spread the word and gather feedback about transit services and projects. We’ve got good news and you can help us spread it! You could make a big difference in someone’s life just by helping them ride IndyGo. It’s fun; it’s rewarding, and it’s important.

As an IndyGo Transit Ambassador volunteer, you’ll be trained by IndyGo to be knowledgeable about transit in Indianapolis, including current routes, route changes, and the next steps of IndyGo’s grand Transit Plan. You’ll know IndyGo!

Once you’ve learned the ropes, you’ll teach others how to use transit and help riders feel confident riding the bus, and you’ll be a source of information about IndyGo service changes and/or upcoming projects. You’ll be a member of the IndyGo go-to crew.

Ambassador Qualifications

Eligible volunteers must be at least 18 years old and able to commit to a year term. As an ambassador, you’ll be expected to attend monthly meetings with IndyGo staff and solicit rider feedback on routes or at events at least three times a month during your term.
