Phase 1 of the Transit Plan calls for the introduction of a new bus rapid transit line (i.e. The Red Line) running from Broad Ripple on the north side to University of Indianapolis on the south side. This new line will provide more frequent service with fewer stops, connecting area residents with more places to work, shop, and experience our great city. 

Phase 2 of the Plan funds transit improvements and expansion for a Blue Line and Purple lines. Here’s a link to more details: http://www.indygo.net/transitplan/
