INDIANAPOLIS – IndyGo today announced an upcoming Open House regarding the proposed Purple Line.
Those interested in learning more about the Purple Line project are invited to drop in between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. for an Open House at CAFE Indy (8902 East 38th Street) on Thursday, February 13. IndyGo staff will be present to answer questions and provide project updates.
The Purple Line is the second of IndyGo’s three planned bus rapid transit lines, featuring dedicated lanes, station platforms with level boarding, and offboard fare payment. The 15.2 mile Purple Line will connect Indianapolis and the City of Lawrence. For much of the corridor, the Purple Line will replace and improve existing Route 39 local service. The Purple Line is projected to reduce transit travel time by more than 25% compared to existing service.
The Purple Line project will also bring infrastructure improvements to the area, including sidewalk improvements, a multi-use path connecting to the Fall Creek Greenway, resurfacing and repaving, and new drainage infrastructure.
Construction is anticipated to begin on the Purple Line in early 2021, with the line opening for revenue service in 2023. Learn more about the Purple Line at https://www.indygo.net/purple-line/.
