A new route is connecting IndyGo riders to opposite ends of the city’s north side.
Route 86 runs from the Trader’s Point shopping center on the northwest side to Community Hospital north on the northeast side.
Buses will run every half hour Monday through Saturday.
Route 86 also offers seven connecting routes.
Mayor Greg Ballard said public transit should remain a priority.
“We cannot emphasis enough how much this enhances the quality of life as we continue to put the pieces together, little by little, and get all of this together,” said Ballard. “It really does enhance the quality of life for everybody in our city.”
Route 86 is just one piece of IndyGo’s overall service improvement plan for 2013.
