IndyGo plans fare changes for Open Door riders

Posted at 4:26 PM, Jan 24, 2019

INDIANAPOLIS — IndyGo is planning some changes to its fare structure.

The good news for most riders is that the basic fare remains $1.75.

In addition, there will no longer be transfer charges when going from one route to another.

But there's a big change for disabled riders who pay nothing to use the bus as part of IndyGo's Open Door policy.

If the proposed fare structure is approved by the IndyGo board in February, the Open Door fare will be 85 cents.

The cost for using the transit system's curb-to-curb service will remain $3.50.

Curb-to-curb users reserve a ride from one specific location to another.

IndyGo plans public hearings on the fare changes.

The first two are Feb. 6 at 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the Central Library on East St. Clair Street.

The final hearing is Feb. 28 at 5 p.m. at IndyGo headquarters, 1501 West Washington St.

If approved, the fare changes go into effect later this year in conjunction with the opening of the Red Line — IndyGo's new bus mass transit system linking Broad Ripple with the Universtiy of Indianapolis.
