IndyGo Installs Lumin-Air UV-C Light Filtration System on Entire In-Service Fleet

IndyGo has officially launched the Lumin-Air state-of-the-art UV-C light air filtration system on its entire fleet of buses in service, including paratransit, regular fixed route and Red Line buses. This system helps continuously remove pathogens, allergens and some odors from the air riders breathe, bringing them “Easy, Breezy, Cleaner Air with Lumin-Air.” IndyGo is now the first transit agency in the nation to install this system on its full fleet.   

In the wake of the lifting of the federal transportation mask mandate, passengers will now have peace of mind and an additional layer of protection while traveling on IndyGo buses. This is the agency’s latest effort to increase rider and bus operator safety from threats such as COVID-19, along with other viruses and contaminants in the air.  

“I’m proud to say our buses now have some of the cleanest air in the country,” said IndyGo President and CEO Inez Evans. “With the installation of this system, we’re demonstrating how we prioritize safety. Our riders and coach operators can breathe easier knowing their air is cleaner than ever before when they travel with us.” 

The system leverages the HVAC unit on buses to draw in air from the bus compartment, filter it, eliminate harmful contaminants and return the clean, conditioned air back to the bus. The system is completely self-contained, meaning riders are not exposed to UV-C light and nothing is emitted into the air people breathe. The entire volume of air in a bus passes through the HVAC system once every two minutes, compared to once every six to 10 minutes in an office space. This level of circulation helps ensure the continuous replenishment of clean air inside the bus.

Your safety is important to us and we take this responsibility very seriously. We will continue to follow the guidance of the CDC, the Indiana Department of Health, and the Marion County Public Health Department for best practices

Onboard Buses

IndyGo has installed shields onboard all fixed route buses to create a physical barrier between Operators and riders during the fare collection process.

Vehicle and Facility Cleaning:

IndyGo is providing additional antibacterial stations at the Carson Transit Center.

IndyGo continues to perform bus cleaning and sanitization procedures, including Electrostatic Disinfection.

  • What it is: Electrostatic Disinfection treatments help disinfect hard-to-reach areas and provide a thin barrier for longer-lasting disinfectant.
  • How it works: A mist is sprayed into the interior of every bus. The spray contains particles that adhere to and coat any surface. The Electrostatic spray gives a negative charge to the disinfecting solution, allowing the solution to stick to surfaces.
