Using the South Plainfield Connector is easy:
- Just take IndyGo’s Route 8 – Washington Street west to the Bridgeport Road stop.
- Get off that bus and go to the South Plainfield Connector sign (it’s right there at the IndyGo stop), where the Connector will stop for pick up and drop off.
- Get on the South Plainfield Connector, pay your fare and ride to your job!
The Connector travels through the South Plainfield warehouse and industrial park area, making multiple stops (see map below) to get you to your workplace. To make sure you get to work and home on time, the Connector operates Monday through Friday, starting at 5:15 a.m. (for the earliest bus, see note below). It takes a break from 9:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m., when it resumes and continues until 6:30 p.m.
The fare for the South Plainfield Connector is $1 in exact change per one-way trip. No pennies are accepted. A 10-trip pass is available for purchase on the bus with cash ($10). Agencies and employers may contact CIRTA for information about purchasing multiple passes. All sales are final and are non-refundable.
Note: The 5:15 South Plainfield Connector starts its run in downtown Indianapolis. In order to accommodate early morning shifts, the first run leaves at 5:15 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 for the remainder of the day.
*After departing from Delaware and Washington, bus travels to all Plainfield stops shown on route map
The South Plainfield Connector was initially funded by a federal Congestion Mitigation Air Quality (CMAQ) grant, with support from the Town of Plainfield, and is currently funded by the Town of Plainfield, and CIRTA grants issues through the U.S. Federal Transit Administration Section 5307 program, and the Indiana Public Mass Transportation Fund.
