Indianapolis’s bus system has never been all that great. The routes don’t serve large parts of the city, and the buses come at most every half hour.

The city is trying to change that with a new set of rapid-transit bus lines. The first, the Red Line, opened late last year. It runs north-south along a critical transportation corridor, connecting the University of Indianapolis on the Southside to Broad Ripple (and, in some cases, almost the north city limit) on the Northside. The Red Line’s electric buses reach stops every ten minutes.

I took my team at work to lunch in Broad Ripple last fall, and we rode the Red Line both ways. This is the stop Downtown at the bus terminal, where we began and ended our trip. It sure beat driving and finding a place to park.

    I like the idea of good bus service but live and work in locations where buses don’t go. I have a bad feeling that the Red Line is going to become a black hole, financially – just like our transit system always has been. And the current lockdown is not helping the situation

      I sure hope these BRT lines work. They could be so very useful if they do.
