Fare Policy

With the implementation of the Marion County Transit Plan, IndyGo is transitioning its bus service to a grid-based network, adding three rapid transit lines, and improving its local routes.

As part of this transition, IndyGo staff has adopted major fare policy change to accommodate and improve the customer experience with the new system.

Prior to the fare policy adoption, IndyGo opened the public comment period on the proposed policy change. The comment period was publicized through regular communication channels in accordance with the Public Involvement Plan.

MyKey

MyKey is IndyGo’s account-based fare system. Choose to pay and ride with your smartphone or reloadable card on bus rapid transit or local bus service. With MyKey, you can also take advantage of fare capping perks!

Fare Capping gives you an alternative to a weekly or monthly bus pass. It removes the barrier of the upfront cost of passes by providing a “pay as you go” fare structure with a “cap” on the amount you pay. Fare capping is a new feature available only through the MyKey fare system.

  • Daily fare cap: $4.00 full fare / $2.00 half fare.
  • Weekly fare cap: $15.75 full fare / $7.65 half fare. Your tap card must be registered to your account to be eligible for weekly fare capping.

Once the fare cap amount is met within a single day or transit week, you will not be charged any additional fares until the start of a new day or transit week.

Fare Inspection

Since the Red Line has off-board fare collection, how will IndyGo know whether or not I paid my fare to board the bus?
The Red Line will include fare inspectors that will periodically check passengers for proof of fare payment. Riders will be required to have proof of fare payment in the form of a validated MyKey fare card or a validated MyKey mobile app at all times while at Red Line station platforms or on Red Line buses.
