Music in Transit was created in 2019 alongside the Arts Council of Indianapolis and Square Cat Vinyl, a coffee and record shop located along the Red Line in Fountain Square. The goal was to celebrate the local arts community as well as the expansion of public transit with the launch of the Red Line, Indianapolis’ first bus rapid transit (BRT) line. Since its inaugural season, the series has received eight Emmy nominations, with two wins for outstanding audio in 2019 and 2022. The series also received Indy Chamber’s 2020 Monumental Award for public art.
