This page was last updated on August 3, 2020.
Effective July 9, IndyGo riders must wear masks onboard all IndyGo fixed route and paratransit vehicles and at all IndyGo facilities, including the Carson Transit Center, to comply with the Marion County Health Department’s order that masks are required in public spaces.
As of June 1, IndyGo has resumed regular weekday schedules, Monday through Friday. Saturday and Sunday service remains as scheduled. The Carson Transit Center lobby and restrooms remain closed, except for riders buying fare at the Retail Desk during regular business hours. Learn more:
- IndyGo will honor bus passes activated prior to March 29 when fares were suspended. Riders should bring their activated pass to the retail desk during business hours to be issued a new pass for the remaining balance.

If you do need to ride, we encourage you to please keep as much distance as possible between yourself and others and to wear a face covering if you are able. To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, we will continue our increased cleaning and disinfecting of our buses, as well as provide additional antibacterial stations at our facilities.
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.
Carson Transit Center
- The lobby will be fully closed to the public to promote social distancing.
Vehicle and Facility Cleaning:
- Providing additional antibacterial stations at the Carson Transit Center
- Increasing the frequency of bus cleaning and sanitization which includes Electrostatic Disinfection.
What is Electrostatic Disinfection?
This treatment will help disinfect hard to reach areas and will also provide a thin barrier for longer-lasting disinfectant.
How does it work?
The mist will be sprayed into the interior of every bus. The spray contains particles that adhere to surfaces and will coat any surface. The Electrostatic spray gives a negative charge to the disinfecting solution allowing the solution to stick to surfaces.
- Wear a mask on board for extra protection. If riders don’t have a face mask, riders are encouraged to wear other face coverings, such as a bandana or scarf, while riding. Effective July 9, IndyGo riders must wear masks onboard all IndyGo fixed route and paratransit vehicles and at all IndyGo facilities, including the Carson Transit Center, to comply with the Marion County Health Department’s order that masks are required in public spaces.
- Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
- Avoid touching your face, especially your eyes.
- Use a tissue when you sneeze, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you don’t have a tissue cover your sleeve.
- Cover your cough with your sleeve.
- Stay home if you are sick.
