On The Beat Industry News In Brief

IndyGo’s “Green Line/Airport Express” will screech its way to four additional downtown hotel destinations.

The expanded service shuttling air travelers and airport workers to and from Indianapolis International Airport began Feb. 3, to the newly opened Fairfield Inn & Suites at West and Washington streets.

Others include the Courtyard by Marriott and Spring Hill Suites, both starting Feb. 18.

IndyGo also plans a stop at the JW Marriott, which is still under construction, in February 2011. All four hotels are part of the new Marriott Place complex.

Frequency is every 20 minutes, with the trip between downtown and the airport taking about as long.

A number of such specialty routes, including commuter service to Hamilton County, are made possible by federal grants.

The city’s locally underfunded bus service, meanwhile, is reducing and adjusting other routes as part of a need to cut operating expenses $500,000. Details are available at IndyGo.net.

  • Correction
    IndyGo's Green Line Airport Express service is also funded by a federal grant (along with the Carmel and Fishers ICE routes). It is not operating as part of IndyGo's budget. The one new Green Line stop at Washington and West streets is serving all four new hotels in the JW Marriott Complex. The stop became effective on Feb 14. Five local service routes are being adjusted due to IndyGo receiving less income from proerty taxes and state mass transportation funds. Other adjustments are part of the company's normal adjustment of service based on use.

  1. Only half a million TV Viewers? And thats an increase? I knew Indycar was struggling but I didn't know it was that bad. Hell, if NASCAR hits 5 Million viewers everyone starts freaking out saying its going down hill. It has a long way to before Indycar even hits NASCAR's bad days.

  2. IU has been talking that line for years with no real progress even with the last Dean, Dr. Brater. Why will an outsider, Dr. Hess, make a difference? With no proof of additional resources (cash in the bank), and a concrete plan to move an academic model that has been outdated for decades with a faculty complacent with tenure and inertia, I can count on IU to remain the same during the tenure of Dr. Hess. One ought to look to Purdue and Notre Dame for change and innovation. It is just too bad that both of those schools do not have their own medical school. Competition might wake up IU. My guess is, that even with those additions to our State, IU will remain in its own little world squandering our State's tax dollars. Why would any donor want to contribute to IU with its track record? What is its strategy to deal with the physician shortage for our State? New leadership will not be enough for us to expect any change.

  3. How do you think the Bridges got approved? I spent a couple days researching PAC's and individual contributions to some city council members during that time. My printouts were inches thick on the two I concentrated on. Finally gave up. Was disgusted with all the donations, and who they were from. Would have taken me days and days to compile a complete list. Tried to give it to the Star reporter, but he thought it was all just fine. (and apparently he was treated well himself) He ended up being laid off or fired though. And then of course, there was land donated to the dad's club, or city, as a partial payoff. All done in the shining example of "charity." No, none of these contributions are a coincidence.

  4. I agree what kind of help or if any will be there for Dr. Ley's patients. I was a patient myself.

  5. What about the hundreds of patients who sought this doctor for the right reasons, to quit drugs. what option do these patients now have, experience horrible withdrawl or return to heroin?? those are the choices. what about the children of these former addicts who's parent(s) WILL not b able to maintain their job, for @ least 2 weeks.. There needs to b an emergency clinic opened for these patients.
