       riders report a household income of less than $25,000 a year.
      • More than 50% of riders are transit-dependent (i.e., they are from households that do not
       own a vehicle). Of riders, 78% do not have a vehicle available to them for travel even if their
       household has a vehicle, and 60% of IndyGo riders do not have a drivers license.
      • In the absence of transit service to complete their trip, 26% of riders indicated they would
       not make the trip.
      • Approximately 70% of riders begin and end their trip at work or home.
      • Most IndyGo riders are regular transit users. Eighty percent of riders use IndyGo services
       more than three days per week, and 30% use IndyGo transit 6-7 days per week.

2010 Budget




   On July 26, 1990, President George Bush signed the
  Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. One provision
     prohibits private and public entities that provide
 transportation to the general public from discriminating
              against people with disabilities.

2010 Budget


                  Paratransit Requirements
Service must be provided within corridors of three-fourths (3/4)
of a mile on each side of each Fixed Route.

The fare for a trip on paratransit cannot exceed twice the fare that
would be charged on Fixed Route.

No restrictions can be imposed based on trip purpose.

Paratransit service must be available during the same days and
hours comparable to fixed route service.
                                              ADA Paratransit (Open Door)

2010 Budget


 IPTC has provided accessible transportation services since 1977 with the name
 of “Metro Care-A-Van.” Service was provided to disabled citizens who resided
 in Metro’s (IndyGo’s) service area and who were unable, due to disability, to
 utilize the regular fixed route service.

 In December of 1992, Metro implemented a policy to go beyond the three-quarter
 mile limit to serve ALL OF MARION COUNTY.

          “As long as it is economically feasible, Metro will adhere to this policy.”


 In addition, service was intended throughout the county until the entire fixed route
 fleet is ADA accessible.
