Ride the bus with us! Join Senior Director of the Basic Needs Fund, Nate Lichti, for an informational ride on the Red Line, and meet with one of our community partners to hear firsthand how they’re taking advantage of increased transit options.

New employment, educational advancement, and the connection to quality healthcare often depend on an individual’s access to reliable transportation.

United Way has a long history of advocating for and directly funding improved transportation systems for Central Indiana families in need. Earlier this year, the Basic Needs Fund awarded grants to community-based organizations which will provide transportation services to nearly 12,000 of our neighbors.

Whether it’s a struggling senior needing a ride to a critical medical appointment, a child traveling home from an afterschool mentorship program, or a job applicant heading across the city for a big job interview, modern transit systems connect our city and our people in ways we don’t often think about.

The benefits associated with our community’s major expansion of public transportation services are a monumental step forward in linking our neighborhoods to economic opportunity and combatting multigenerational poverty. For that reason, we’re excited to celebrate the opening of the Red Line!
