Purple Line

The Purple Line is one component of the larger Marion County Transit Plan, which proposes significant improvements system-wide. This frequent, fast, and reliable service is a core operational element of an efficient and connected grid of routes. The 14.6 mile Purple Line will connect Indianapolis and Lawrence running along most of the current Route 39 with additional stops on Post Rd.
