INDIANAPOLIS (June 10, 2021) — IndyGo unveiled upgraded bus stops at two locations along West Washington Street to enhance rider experience Thursday morning. Two bus stops located at West Washington Street and Bridgeport Road and the eastbound bus stop at West Washington Street and Sigsbee Street along Route 8 received significant improvements including new boarding areas, sidewalks, curb ramps, shelters and solar lighting.
These stops are workforce connector transfers and experience high ridership. Additional connectors will use these stops in the future increasing the volume of riders throughout these areas.
“IndyGo is excited to enhance the rider experience at these busy bus stops with the critical upgrades and conveniences our customers deserve and expect,” said Inez Evans, IndyGo president and CEO. “We are also grateful to our partners who collaborated with us and helped make these changes possible.”
Partners on this project include the Indianapolis City-County Council, Town of Plainfield, Central Indiana Regional Transportation Authority (CIRTA) and Indy Gateway.
