East-side shuttle service makes debut

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share
A new public shuttle service was launched this morning on the near-east side of Indianapolis.

Known as the Near Eastside Orbiter, the 24-passenger shuttle is provided by the John H. Boner Community Center at 2236 E. 10th St. and completes a 15-mile circular route in about an hour.

It travels as far north as the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and Rural Street and as far south as the intersection of Southeastern Avenue and St. Paul Street. The route extends to Delaware Street to the west and to Ritter Street to the east.

The service is funded through the Federal Transit Administration's Job Access and Reverse Commute program, Boner Center funds from United Way of Central Indiana and passenger fares.

Cost is $1 per ride or $30 for a monthly pass that can be purchased at the Boner Center. The shuttle runs Monday through Saturday from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

A free one-way pass good through the end of the month can be downloaded at www.enn.org.
