IndyGo Announces Red Line Bus Rapid Transit Station Design Competition

Indy Chamber News Archives

As part of the overall system design, IndyGo is facilitating a design ideascompetition to foster creative design solutions for 28 rapid transit stations along Phase 1 of the Red Line Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) route.

This competition is a one-stage, open-ideas competition, and submissions will include two separate concept-level station designs; one for center platforms and one for curbside platforms. Those who submit should consider a station concept that maximizes the benefits of transit to riders, reflects the culture of Indianapolis and its neighborhoods, can be constructed and maintained in a sustainable manner, and conveys a sense of safety and elegance.

“The Red Line is an exciting project for Indianapolis and will significantly improve transit service for current and future riders,” stated IndyGo’s Director of Special Projects, Justin Stuehrenberg. “The public’s input is essential and thus a public voting component is included in the final judging and determination of the winner.”

The Red Line would be the first BRT system in Indiana, as well as the first all-electric BRT system in the country. This system will stretch 35 miles through Westfield, Carmel, Indianapolis, and Greenwood with the initial 13.6 mile phase 1 to be complete in 2018. Phase 1 received a $75 million federal Small Starts grant. BRT provides fast, frequent, and comfortable transport for passengers and serves as the spine of an effective transit network.

Submissions are due July 8, public voting information will be released in June, and the winner will be announced early August. For details on timeline, to read the Red Line Design Competition Booklet, and to submit, visit the IndyGo website.
