INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 4, 2014) – IndyGo is readying its fleet and staff for the impeding winter storm set to move through central Indiana, affecting evening travel tonight Feb. 4 and rush hour commutes tomorrow, Feb. 5
IndyGo will continue running during the storm, but with heavy snowfall, IndyGo passengers should expect delays system-wide. Passengers are also encouraged to take the following precautions:
- Allow for extra travel time to and from your destination. Plan for delays due to icy streets, heavy snowfall and traffic congestion.
- Watch your footing as snow and ice can make sidewalks, steps and bus floors slippery. Hold onto the railing when boarding and alighting.
- Dress warmly for potentially longer wait times at bus stops.
- Contact the IndyGo Customer Service Call Center at 317.635.3344, Monday through Friday 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. for real-time bus arrivals and information on detours. Detours and route delays can also be found on IndyGo’s Twitter account, @IndyGoBus.
To combat any travel issues the storm may bring, IndyGo will prepare additional vehicles for the road and staff ancillary mechanics and professional coach operators. If service levels begin to drop due to hazardous street conditions, IndyGo will also call in extra street supervisors to monitor service.
Additionally, IndyGo encourages business owners and residents to keep their sidewalks clear of snow and ice to make passage to bus stops safe for all pedestrians.
