Note: The Express routes run directly from downtown Indianapolis. In order to accommodate early morning shifts, the first run starting September 7th will leave at 5:10 am in downtown Indianapolis from the Plainfield Connectors sign on Washington Street, near Delaware Street, across the street from the Indianapolis Downtown Transit Center. The Connector then travels directly to Plainfield, circulates through its regular stops, and continues its regular route until late night where the buses will then run directly to and from the Transit Center in Downtown Indianapolis.
*After departing from Delaware and Washington, bus travels to all Plainfield stops shown on route map*
The combined route serves all existing stops on both the prior north and south connectors. The route will run through the prior south route first followed by the north route. Having three shifts covered will ensure that you have a ride home even if you work late!
