This page will feature tools for members of the community and businesses to find resources before, during and after construction of the Red Line.
During construction, IndyGo will strive to minimize disruption to businesses and residents, as well as vehicular traffic, pedestrians, and bicyclists. Three corridor liaisons have already begun talking one-on-one with business owners and residents to share information and listen to their concerns.
If you have a question or concern, please call your corridor liaison!

Surveys have been mailed to both residents and businesses along the line to gather information. Visit the Transit Impact Study page to learn more information.
In January 2018, 3C Indy, a partnership between Transit Drives Indy and the Arts Council of Indianapolis, chose local artists for a multi-year placemaking program that aims to create a new culture of public transit in Indianapolis.
3C Indy is designed to educate and engage communities, and promote and monitor progress throughout the implementation of the Marion County Transit Plan.
Learn more about how these artists have been working closely with neighborhoods and businesses along the Red Line and Purple Line corridors to educate and promote the system and its benefits.
