This winter, despite bitter cold temperatures, all I can think about is how I would love for someone else to do the driving, as I strategically maneuver my 4×4 Jeep through snow filled streets. However, I work near Pendleton Pike and Oaklandon Road, where there is not an Indy Go bus in sight. As a new contributor to Urban Indy, I will be sharing my passion for mass transit and the news regarding it here in Indianapolis.
Indiana legislators are going through their lists of topics this session one by one, and soon to take the platform will be a topic of particular interest: Mass Transit. As those apart of Indy Connect and the Indianapolis Metropolitan Organization begin to narrow down their recommendations for transit here in Indianapolis, the first voice to be heard on the subject this session can be yours. The Indiana Citizens’ Alliance for Transit, or ICAT, will be hosting Transit Day this Thursday, January 23, 2014 at the Statehouse. This will be an opportunity for residents of Indiana to speak with legislators and state representatives and voice their opinions about what needs to be done regarding transit in their respective communities. The schedule of Thursday’s events is posted below, and more information is available at http://www.indianacat.org/transit-day/.
10:00 a.m. - Rally at the Statehouse
