Just a reminder: for those of us who know how good the IndyConnect mass transit plan is and how vital it is for the future success of Indianapolis in so many different ways, there is a very important council meeting to show your support atÂ tonight at 5:30 in room 260 in the City County Building. It’s absolutely vital that as many of us show up to this meeting as possible in support of the full transit plan. It’s still a very doable and needed plan even if the federal funding does not come through. If you’d like to say something at tonight’s meeting, please email Transit Drives IndyÂ as they will be able to get you registered to speak tonight as well as for the finalÂ two meetings before the council votes. This is the last bit of our multi-year marathon to improve Indy’s mass transit system and we all need to push harder than ever to cross the finish line.
Now for your reading pleasure, here’s a great article that shows what we already know: effective mass transit, and we know the IndyConnect plan is just that, becomes an enormous economic development force for a city and is the best way to help a city grow more prosperous by allowing for more financially sustainable development patterns.
