INDIANAPOLIS — IndyGo is hosting its first Back to School Night Thursday, July 27, from 6 – 8 p.m. at the Carson Transit Center (CTC). This event is for youth who want the benefit of greater mobility to navigate throughout the city while gaining new skills and independence.    

IndyGo will offer youth (ages 18 and younger) a Reduced Fare ID card, a free backpack (while supplies last) and travel training opportunities to inform families about how to use transit. Students who attend a partnering high school will receive an ID card for unlimited access to the bus network. IndyGo asks that students bring a completed Program Enrollment Form from their school administrator, acknowledging which sponsored rides program the student should be enrolled in. However, one will not be required for this event. Students enrolled at a non-participating high school (ages 18 and younger) are eligible to ride at IndyGo’s half-fare rate and can receive their own personalized MyKey card at this event. 

“We’re excited to empower the next generation of riders to advocate for themselves,” Special Programs Manager Jordan Patterson said. “Our sponsored rides program offers students the freedom and independence to seize and connect to opportunities in and outside of the classroom.” 

This event will feature a DJ, free food and fun IndyGo swag. Riders can plan their trips to the CTC online here. For motorists, parking will be available at the following locations: 

Requests for reasonable accommodation should be made at least three days in advance and can be submitted by contacting Special Programs Manager Jordan Patterson at
