The Transit Proposal Passed!
At the Monday, Feburary 27 Indianapolis/Marion County City-County Council meeting, the council voted to enact the 0.25% transit tax! This is a significant milestone toward putting better transit service on the streets in Marion County. So now what?
- Marion County will be able to start collecting the tax this October 2017, and IndyGo can start making the local service improvements as early as 2018.
- The Red Line is awaiting federal funding, but still on track to be open to the public by 2019.
- IndyGo will begin engineering studies on the Purple and Blue Lines to get them "shovel-ready" as quickly as possible.
Thanks to everyone that supported this important transit initiative!
