The city of Indianapolis has announced the first car share stations for Blue Indy. The deal now plans to tap parking meter revenue instead of an IPL rate hike, but the new deal has also come under fire.
Regardless of the messy process behind this deal, I thought it’d be good to visualize the first proposed stations, so I made a map of them and linked it below:
I’m surprised Butler University, the Airport, and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway are not included in the initial launch. What other glaring omissions can you think of?
Please keep in mind that there should be more installed at a later time, as Blue Indy mentioned there will be up to 200 stations. I hope that the city can find a way to support this program that will satisfy the citizens and the council. It appears to be one of the better ways for citizens to live in IndianapolisÂ without needing to own a vehicle.
