On November 8, Marion County residents have the option to vote for dedicated transit funding. This dedicated local revenue source would fund the Marion County Transit Plan: a plan that would significantly improve the local bus network with shorter wait times, longer hours of service, all routes running every day, and rapid transit lines. Funding for the Blue and Purple rapid transit lines are dependent on passage and enactment of the November 8 transit referendum.
