The IndyGo Downtown Transit Center, located at the corner of Washington and Delaware Street, broke ground on construction in late 2014. After nearly two years, the station had its grand opening on June 26th as scheduled. The land for the project was donated by the City of Indianapolis and is located close to the "downtown loop", making it an ideal spot for bus routes and public access. The steel frame of the transit center is almost completely glass and features 19 bus stops that are covered by large canopies to protect patrons from the elements.

 


The $20 million project involves the work of construction company Weddle Brothers, architect URS Corporation, and façade subcontractor ProCLAD, who was selected to design and install many of the main features of the structure. ProCLAD developed a multifaceted project package that included white
porcelain panels that outline the main entrances of the building. Also integrated into ProCLAD's design are custom stainless steel panels as well as artisan soffit panels provided by MBCI, which give the facility a simple yet sleek appearance. Lastly, custom aluminum panels can be found on the "graphic panels" located inside the station where travelers can view route times as well as a number of advertisements.
