IndyGo has launched a design competition for rapid transit stations along Phase 1 of the Red Line Bus Rapid Transit route. The public transit service says it is looking for ideas that maximize rider benefits, reflect the Indianapolis culture and can be built in a sustainable manner.
Submissions need to include two separate designs; one for center platforms and one for curbside platforms. There will be 28 stations along Phase 1 of the route. In all, the system will run 35 miles through Westfield, Carmel, Indianapolis and Greenwood. Phase 1, which stretches 13.6 miles, is scheduled to be complete in 2018. The project has received a $75 million federal Small Starts grant.
IndyGo Director of Special Projects Justin Stuehrenberg says public input on the project is essential, saying the public will be able to vote on the entries. Submissions are due July 8. You can find more information on the competition by clicking here.
