Life in the Fast Lane: Rapid Transit Comes to UIndy

Indy’s New Red Line Makes a Stop on Campus

UIndy’s exciting growth and development is not limited to the boundaries of campus. Students will now have the opportunity to be more fully connected to the city of Indianapolis via the Red Line – a rapid transit electric bus service that will link the UIndy campus to downtown Indianapolis. The route, which spans from UIndy’s campus to 66th Street in Broad Ripple, connects several neighborhoods, major employers and cultural institutions with frequent, comfortable rapid transit service.

The Red Line will give UIndy students easy access to downtown Indianapolis for internship, volunteering and community engagement opportunities, connecting them with organizations including the Indiana state government, professional sports teams such as the Indiana Pacers and Indianapolis Colts, and businesses including Eli Lilly & Co., Salesforce, Rolls-Royce Corp. and Emmis Communications (to name just a few). In addition, the Red Line will provide a route to culturally-rich areas steeped with restaurants, entertainment and cultural venues in neighborhoods such as Fountain Square, Fletcher Place, Midtown, Meridian-Kessler and Broad Ripple. 

The Red Line at a Glance:

  • Operates 20 hours a day (5 a.m. – 1 a.m.)
  • 7 days a week
  • Buses every 10 minutes during peak hours
