“The Marion County Transit Plan proposes significant improvements for a historically underfunded mass transit system,” said IndyGo President and CEO, Mike Terry. “Nearly 60% of Marion County residents voted in favor of a tax to improve the city’s transit system.” The maximum rate of 0.25% would be dedicated to funding service improvements including shorter wait times, extended weekend and late night operations, and other capital investments like new vehicles and rapid transit lines.
At the January 9, 2017 City County Council meeting, Proposal 3, a measure to enact a tax dedicated to transit, was introduced by Council President Maggie Lewis. The full council voted for final adoption on Monday, February 27, 2017. Read the press release for more information.
