UPDATE: Expected Timeline for Transit at the City-County Council


Precinct-level results for the Transit referendum

After passing the referendum in Indianapolis with relative ease, the mass transit issue now moves to the City-County Council, which is first introduced tonight at 7 pm @ the City County Building. Here is the tentative schedule:

  • 1/9–Introduced at council meeting and assigned to Rules & Public Policy Committee (7pm Assembly Room)
  • 1/30 at 7pm for public testimony to the whole council
  • 2/1–hearing at Municipal Corporation Committee (5:30pm Room 260)
  • 2/21–official advertised public hearing and vote by Rules Committee (5:30pm Room 260)
  • 2/27–full council votes on final adoption (7pm Assembly Room)

Transit Drives Indy is requesting that the largest presence should be felt on January 23rd and February 21st. Of course, any meeting would be a good one for supporters of transit to attend. If all goes well, Indy Connect might finally have a funding mechanism in place within the next 2 months.

    The “presentation” tonight left more questions than answers. We were notified that if the Metro folks take on debt with their program, we as taxpayers will foot that bill, too. Will they please just drop the Red Line and the other “fixed” routs and get on with transporting people where they need to go. If a route needs adjusting, then they can do it. NOT with fixed routes.
