“As a community, Indianapolis has embraced multimodal transportation,” said Mark Fisher, chief policy officer with Indy Chamber.
In 2013, the city’s connectivity increased dramatically with the creation of the eight-mile (13 km) Indianapolis Cultural Trail: A Legacy of Gene & Marilyn Glick, later enhanced by the Pacers Bikeshare system. Indianapolis adopted a complete-streets ordinance in 2012 and has added more than 200 miles (322 km) of bike lanes since. BlueIndy, one of the nation’s most extensive all-electric vehicle-sharing systems, was introduced in 2015. And the connectivity will accelerate even more with the completion of the city’s new BRT system, currently under construction.
