Petitioning Indianapolis Councilor Zach Adamson (Indianapolis Councilor) and 39 others

Stop The Indianapolis Red Line Transit Project

A growing number of Indianapolis residents are becoming aware of a development scheme that will have long-term consequences.

IndyGo is planning to build a $350 million dollar electric bus system. The first phase, called the Red Line, will run along College Avenue and Meridian Street from 66th Street down to the University of Indianapolis.

Since there is little demand for an expensive electric bus along this route, the City plans to promote ridership by allowing private developers to build 5 story apartment complexes along College Avenue.

To further promote ridership, IndyGo plans to close lanes on College Avenue, build a 15 inch high median, and restrict left turns. This will slow traffic, eliminate street parking, hurt existing businesses, and forever alter the character of historic neighborhoods such as Meridian-Kessler and Forrest Hills.

The Red Line has been cleverly packaged as progressive, socially conscious, and environmentally friendly; but don’t be fooled. The Red Line is a well orchestrated scheme that allows developers to exploit a federal transportation grant at the expense of neighborhoods and taxpayers.

Please help us share the message:   NO TO THE RED LINE TRANSIT PROJECT.
