The Julia M. Carson Transit Center opened June 26, 2016. This innovative new facility serves as the centerpiece of IndyGo’s rapidly growing public transit system. Among the features riders will enjoy is information system messaging that communicates bus routes and arrival projections in real time. IndyGo is just the second transit center in the United States to fully integrate this new system.
The opening of the Carson Transit Center is a game-changer for the City of Indianapolis. The new Center provides pedestrians, cyclists, and riders with 19 bus bays, indoor and covered waiting areas, free wifi, public restrooms, and retail space. The Center also houses IndyGo’s call center, ticketing office, and operator’s lounge in addition to conference, training, and pre-function space.
Shiel Sexton worked closely with IndyGo throughout the planning and construction process. The building’s unique curved design is cladded with porcelain and stainless steel panels and features a two-story glass curtainwall that supplies natural light throughout the building.
Shiel Sexton is very proud to have been involved in this new Downtown Indianapolis landmark.
