INDOT Publishes Transit Annual Report
(September 28, 2015) – The Indiana Department of Transportation has published its Indiana Public Transit Annual Report with information about the fixed-route and demand-response systems operating in 67 Indiana counties.
After each calendar year, INDOT surveys transit systems that receive public assistance for financial and ridership data. Transit ridership continued to grow in 2014 with 1,924 vehicles providing 37.4 million trips and logging 45.1 million miles.
During 2014, INDOT’s Transit Office distributed nearly $59.2 million in state funds appropriated by the Indiana General Assembly. To download or view the report, please visit www.in.gov/indot/2826.htm.
Intercity Mass Transit
INDOT directly supports two inter-city bus services that – when combined with local systems – provide an inter-connected, multi-modal, transit network.
During 2014, INDOT’s Transit Office awarded $2.3 million in federal rural transit funds to Barons Bus and Miller Trailways’ “Hoosier Ride”. The rural routes connect more than 40 Indiana communities with Greyhound’s national bus network. Purchase tickets through Greyhound toll free at 800-661-8747 or visit https://www.greyhound.com/.
