Transit Referendum Spawns Efforts to Educate, Influence
If the transit referendum passes, it would give the council permission to raise the IndyGo tax rate 0.25 percentage point. That’s 25 cents per $100 of annual income, or $125 a year for a resident with taxable income of $50,00
Public Transit Referendum Forum at Washington Township Government Center
In October 2016, Kheprw Institute in collaboration with Transportation for America hosted a series of youth-led conversations looking at how expanding transit can create equity in Indy communities.
This series will expanded the conversation and educated youth and community on how other cities have strategically used infrastructure funding, new jobs and increased access to transportation to benefit economically distressed communities.
Additionally these forums were held leading up to the referendum on November 8, 2016 about whether to create an income tax in order to implement a proposed expanded transit plan which did pass.
