Proposed Expansion of Bus Routes in Marion County Indiana

Proposed Expansion of Bus Routes in Marion County Indiana
Location Marion County Indiana
Organization Indiana University

IndyGo, the Indianapolis Public Transportation Corporation, proposed tripling existing bus service in the Greater Indianapolis area. The Indiana University Center for Health Policy, in collaboration with the county health department and the local metropolitan planning organization, developed a curriculum for a graduate level HIA course. In the first half of the course, students were exposed to the theoretical framework of HIAs, learned about techniques and methodologies. The second half of the semester was designed to provide practical hands-on experience. Students conducted a rapid assessment focusing on the health impact of the proposed expanded bus routes in the area, on physical activity, obesity, and diabetes.
