The Dinner Series: Transit

In 2016, we held monthly conversations about public transportation in Indianapolis and the role we can play in changing its future.

 Why transit, why now?

We believe that Indianapolis needs a robust transportation system to move people around – to their jobs and to the grocery store, to school and dinner with friends, to the library, and to the doctor. It’s for those who have a choice about their transportation, and it’s for our neighbors who rely on IndyGo every day.

This November, every Marion County voter will be asked if they support a referendum to implement the Marion County Transit Plan. This plan will result in:

  • 70% more service
  • Routes that run every day, later and on the weekends
  • 3 rapid transit lines

Transit Drives Indy is our community’s gathering place to learn more about and express support for the Marion County Transit Referendum. There are a multitude of volunteer opportunities to engage in the effort.

Each second Wednesday in 2016, we travelled across the city for dinner and a conversation about the future of transit in Indy, bus fare included.

Where we’ve gone:
Mass Ave to Midtown, Downtown to Irvington, Broad Ripple to Nora, Fountain Square to Cole Noble, 16 Tech to Speedway, Downtown Transit Center to Highland Park, IMA to the International Marketplace, and Mass Ave to Kennedy King.
