|INDIANAPOLIS (June 17, 2015) – Tomorrow, June 18, Indy residents will have access to an integrated map of downtown Indy that includes IndyGo stops, Pacers bikeshare stations and new BlueIndy car share stations.
“We’re excited this new map will help show people the extended options they have on where to start and end their trips when using public transit,” says Mike Terry, President and CEO of IndyGo. “BlueIndy car share stations are under construction and existing Pacers bikeshare stations make great compliments to public transit.”
The new map helps residents connect the dots between the systems readily available. Whether someone wants to take the bus to work, a Pacers bikeshare bike to lunch, BlueIndy car to happy hour and then perhaps even a rideshare service home, Indianapolis has you covered.
“Pacers Bikeshare is the perfect option for trips along the Cultural Trail,” says Kären Haley, Executive Director of the Indianapolis Cultural Trail. “And combined with BlueIndy or IndyGo, bikeshare helps people go father without a car.”
The map is a great tool to help people Dump the Pump this month as it gives them all the information they need in one place. The map will be available for download at IndyGo.net/DTP and print copies will be available at the Boy Scouts Cookout on the Circle event in the IndyGo tent from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m., this Thursday, June 18.
“BlueIndy is eager to join the public transportation network in Indy. We understand that our service will be best utilized in conjunction with Indy’s existing options for those who want to depend less on their own cars,” says Bob Briggs, Director of Business Development for BlueIndy.
IndyGo kicked off a campaign on June 1 to celebrate Dump the Pump Day and reward people for choosing sustainable transportation. Anyone who registers an IndyGo bus pass at IndyGo.net/DTP and takes a trip on that pass is entered to win memberships to the Pacers Bikeshare and BlueIndy electric car share as well as free IndyGo rides for a year.
