WE NEED YOUR CONTINUED ADVOCACY FOR PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION IN CENTRAL INDIANA!
(Tuesday, March 30, 2021) – We need your continued advocacy to defeat Senate Bill 141. If enacted, SB 141 would seriously threaten public transportation funding in Central Indiana and halt progress on the Blue and Purple Rapid Transit Bus lines.
Last Wednesday SB 141 was heard in the House Roads and Transportation Committee. Many expressed opposition to the bill and the negative impact it would have on public transit in Central Indiana. The Indy Chamber, Indianapolis Airport Authority, Goodwill, and United Way of Central Indiana were just a few of the many organizations represented in opposition to the bill.
Upon hearing from constituents via email, phone calls, and testimony, Chairman Pressel decided to hold the bill rather than take a vote.
The committee members need to hear your voice to affirm that this bill should not move out of committee! We need to sustain the pressure and protect IndyGo’s plans to create a reliable, high-quality bus system that will triple high-frequency access to households in poverty and increase access to 115,000 jobs.
Use the links below to quickly and easily email and/or call members of the committee to urge them to vote no on SB141, should it be called to vote.

Thank you for your continued action on this important issue.
