The ability to move easily from place to place increases access to economic, educational, and social opportunity. The Indianapolis of tomorrow makes this movement simple and affordable through an integrated transportation network where people can easily know and use options to move around city.
When designing this network, the different needs and preferences of communities must be taken into account. To create choices that work for everyone, The City:One Indianapolis Challenge puts residents at the center of the conversation and dives deep to understand the barriers that keep the city and its residents from reaching their aspirations today.
Through the City:One Challenge, residents will work with the private and public sectors to identify unmet transportation needs, will collaborate on identifying solutions that address those needs, and will help select one or more pilot projects to share up to $100,000 in funding to launch their ideas.
- Improving affordability of transportation options
- Increasing access to job centers, health care, and education
- Enhancing experiences for residents with physical or other challenges that inhibit their ability to move around the community easily
- Creating multi-modal options that complement IndyGo service
- Identifying creative ways for agencies to distribute incentives for individuals using transit
- Integrating transportation options to create a seamless transit experience
We will update the Indianapolis brief when the explore phase ends and we open the propose phase. For now, if you're interested in how the challenge works, check out our About section.
