INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Veterans in Indianapolis will now be able to ride IndyGo buses for free.

The program, which is a partnership between the city and IndyGo, will provide more than 23,000 bus rides annually for Indianapolis residents who have served in the American armed forces.

“Our veterans have made incredible sacrifices for our country,” said Mayor Joe Hogsett. “This program will ensure they have access to jobs and medical facilities, as well as resources and retail establishments across our great city.”

The bus passes will be available to Indianapolis veterans through dozens of veteran’s services and community centers across the city. Mayor Hogsett and Councillor Kreider will also explore an expanded program that further allows all Marion County veterans to use IndyGo services.

The program is being run through the Mayor’s Office. To learn more about the bus passes, call the Mayor’s Action Center at (317) 327-4MAC (4622).
