INDIANAPOLIS -- Despite some controversy when the program began, BlueIndy has more than 1,000 members after about five months of service.

According to the company, there have been about 7,000 rides since the car service began in September.

"BlueIndy provides all in Indianapolis, residents and visitors alike, with a convenient, affordable, and cleaner driving option," Scott Prince, the general manager of BlueIndy, said. "The adoption of the new service has been stronger than we had hoped and we could not be more delighted to be providing a service that many really needed."

BlueIndy will be expanding its spots around Indianapolis. There will be 20 new stations by the end of February.

Some of the new locations include:

  • Two at Butler University
  • One at University of Indianapolis
  • Four at the Indianapolis International Airport

Last week, BlueIndy announced other expansions, including two in Beech Grove.
