Over the last two years, we have been working with public agency staff, citizens, and national advocates to craft a way forward for transit in Indianapolis. We’ve taken stakeholders and interested citizens through the difficult choices implied by the geometry of high-ridership service and the need to balance this with non-ridership goals. We’ve briefed interested City Council members, and at the core of the project, we hammered out new network concepts with city transportation staff at the table.
Now there’s a plan. I’ll be in Indianapolis on March 16-17 to help brief key leaders about it, but I’ll also be at a terrific public breakfast event on March 17 called Next Stop Opportunity. I love this name because, as can tell from today’s article in the Cleveland Plain Dealer, I really believe that liberty and opportunity, in the urban context, are the whole point of public transit.
I’ll write more about the plan, but if you are in Indianapolis, I hope you can join us bright and early on March 17. Learn more and register here.
