INDIANAPOLIS – IndyGo today announced the date and location of a public hearing regarding proposed route changes planned to go into effect in June 2020.
IndyGo will host a public hearing on February 18, 2020 beginning at 5:30 p.m. at its headquarters, 1501 W. Washington St. There will be a presentation explaining the proposed changes. The public is invited to attend and share their feedback on the proposed changes by making a public comment.
“Public engagement is an essential part of making any service change,” said Bryan Luellen, Vice President of Public Affairs, “IndyGo has collected hundreds of comments and revised plans ahead of board adoption of the new network.”
IndyGo’s Planning department will review all public comments, and the collective feedback will inform the final proposal that will be presented to IndyGo’s Board of Directors at its meeting on February 27, 2020.
IndyGo encourages those who are interested to review the proposed route changes online at https://www.indygo.net/june2020/. The website contains detailed route descriptions and individual route maps explaining the proposed changes.
The proposed changes are intended to move IndyGo’s system from a “hub and spoke,” which requires most routes to travel downtown, to a grid-based system allowing for improved frequency and greater access to transfers throughout the county.
Those who are unable to attend the hearing may submit their comments online through a comment form on the June 2020 route change website, by visiting the Carson Transit Center, or by calling IndyGo’s Customer Service at 317-635-3344. Public comment via these channels will be accepted through February 18th.
