IndyGo Partners with Community Groups Amid Pandemic
IndyGo has partnered with two community groups, the MLK Center and the Near Northwest Response Team, to provide area residents with access to essentials such as groceries and prescriptions amid the COVID-19 pandemic. This is part of a mobility pilot that IndyGo began this year. Learn more about the partnership here.
MPO offices are located in the Indianapolis City-County Building, which has been closed until further notice due to COVID-19. However, we are all working remotely and continue with our normal activities.
