IndyGo continues to offer free rides to IPS students during school bus driver shortage

INDIANAPOLIS (March 2, 2020)—Today IndyGo announced it would continue to offer youth under the age of 18 free rides on regular transit routes on Tuesday, March 3 in light of the Indianapolis Public Schools bus driver shortage.

“IndyGo’s partnership with IPS has helped increase mobility for high schoolers in the city,” said Inez Evans, President and CEO of IndyGo. “When IndyGo learned of the call off, we were eager to help make sure students get to school.”

Family members are welcome to accompany younger students on board by paying for a 2-Hour Ticket, which costs $1.75.

IndyGo will continue to offer free public transportation services to all IPS students while yellow school buses are suspended. IPS high school students already have the option to ride transit for free thanks to the partnership with IndyGo. Families are encouraged to use IndyGo’s Trip Planner by visiting IndyGo.net or call customer service at 317-635-3344 to plan their trip. Riders can also download the MyStop app to track buses in real-time.
