A proposal to fund a mass transit expansion in Marion County has been approved by the City-County Council’s Rules and Public Policy Committee. The measure involves an income tax increase and now heads to the full council.
Proposal 3 is slated for a final vote with the council Monday. In November, voters approved a referendum to pay for expanded public transportation with a 0.25 percent income tax increase.
IndyGo, the city and county’s mass transit corporation, says the Marion County Transit Plan would create shorter wait times, extend weekend and late night operations and include investments in new equipment and rapid transit lines.
The committee cleared the proposal by a 5-2 vote.
