The addition of Bus Rapid Transit lines (our current Red, the upcoming Purple and future Blue lines) will be the most dramatic revamp of the IndyGo system in decades. Mile for mile, dollar for dollar, our BRT lines will be more cost-effective than light rail, while delivering the same significant benefit: transporting riders more economically, more comfortably, more reliably and more quickly — all with improved ease of use.

What is BRT?

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is a fixed route mass transit system designed to emulate the service features of light rail, but in a more cost-effective way. BRT provides regular service that’s fast, frequent, reliable and comfortable.

Consistent with the Institute for Transportation & Development Policy’s definitions of the essential characteristics for a BRT system, IndyGo’s Red, Purple and Blue Lines incorporate the following features.
