Transit mattered when it came to Amazon’s HQ2 bid. It’s a big part of why Detroit didn’t get it. We went down to Indianapolis to talk to Brian Luellen of IndyGo, their major transit agency, to talk about how they made transit work with just one county, how funding it made a difference in business attraction, and more. They’re rolling out 50 miles of bus rapid transit across three lines and increasing regular bus service by 70 percent. The entire interview is on our Daily #Detroit Happy Hour #Podcast, hosted by @_treelock. You can find the show where fine podcasts are found. #Transit#Indianapolis#BRT#Cities#Policy#AmazonHQ2
