Fare Policy Change

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.
