Community Power Indiana: Beyond the Line

Community Power Indiana: Beyond the Line

A film by The Redford Center
Directed by Sam Mirpoorian
Run time: 3:09 minutes

The city of Indianapolis is taking a bet on Clean Transportation. Through a fully bi-partisan effort, IndyGo—the Indianapolis Public Transportation Corporation—created the first, and one of the largest, fully electric bus rapid transit (BRT) systems in the nation; bringing with it faster, more efficient transit, significant infrastructure upgrades, jobs, community benefits, and cleaner air. IndyGo’s Red Line and forthcoming Purple Line provide a safe, reliable, and economically accessible commute alternative. It’s prompting local families to downsize their single passenger vehicle use, facilitating equitable community revitalization, and activating community by providing direct access to healthcare, employment, education, and entertainment.

Power the Vote: Community Power is an initiative of The Redford Center, in collaboration with League of Conservation Voters and Chispa, showcasing local activists, storytellers, and culture-makers as visionary leaders with the collective power to enact lasting environmental change.
