The City of Indianapolis, Bolloré Group and Indianapolis Power and Light Company have announced that construction will begin on the first 12 of up to 200 BlueIndy electric car share stations in Indianapolis soon.
The BlueIndy system will be the largest electric car share service in the U.S. when it is completed. Stations throughout the city will offer the membership-based service, as well as electric vehicle charging infrastructure that the public can use to charge personal EVs.
“I am delighted to welcome BlueIndy to Indianapolis and add this robust electric car share service to the growing list of amenities and transit options in our city,” stated Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard. “When this network is complete, it will make Indianapolis even more attractive to new residents and talent, offer conference goers and visitors a way to explore the city beyond the walkable downtown and distinguish us as one of the most electrified cities in America.”
A full grand opening for the service is anticipated to take place sometime this summer. The first 12 station sites include:
107 W. Washington Street
49 N. Capitol Avenue on the east side of the Statehouse
103 E. Ohio Street
