INDIANAPOLIS — IndyGo is offering a free one-way ride if you make a food donation and again offering free rides on Christmas Day and New Year's Eve.

On Dec. 15, IndyGo is hosting a canned good and non-perishable food drive. Riders who donate an item as they board any fixed route or open door bus will receive a free one-way ride. The donation must be made on the bus at the time of the ride.

The donated food items will go to the Indiana division of the Midwest Food Bank.

Those who aren't riding IndyGo but would like to donate food can make a donation at the Carson Transit Center between 8 a.m.-6 p.m.

“Here at IndyGo, we know the importance of giving back to our community,” Inez Evans, president and CEO of IndyGo, said in a press release. “We are excited to be able to offer these donations to the Midwest Food Bank and hope our riders will join us in supporting our community this holiday season.”

IndyGo is also offering free rides on any fixed route and open door buses on Christmas Day and beginning at 8 p.m. on New Year's Eve.

On Christmas Day, IndyGo will operate on a Sunday schedule and a regular schedule on New Year's Eve.
