Dedicated bus lanes provision tacked on education bill

Indiana lawmakers have briefly proposed changing IndyGo’s plans for dedicated bus lanes on a Washington Street stretch in exchange for repealing state-imposed revenue requirements for the transit agency.

But after a lengthy discussion in the House committee on ways and means of the technical composition of the proposal and its implications, a small majority of committee members voted in favor of bringing it to the table.

The proposal was an amendment to the Education Bill, Senate Bill № 290, which was passed from the Education Committee on February 17, but made several amendments to the Funds.

The amendment, authored by Nobleville MP Chuck Goodrich, proposes not a stick but a carrot approach to redesigning future dedicated bus lanes on Washington Street, where the city’s third fast transit route, the Blue Line, is planned. .
