Yelp’s Stop-By-Stop Guide to Good Eats on IndyGo’s Route17 (College Ave.)

Indy’s hub for mass transit, the Julia M. Carson Transit Center opened this June and to celebrate Yelp’s dishing out a stop-by-stop guide of good eats along IndyGo’s Route 17 (College Ave). Why? The journey is just as important as the destination! IndyGo has 31 routes throughout Indianapolis, a great option to get to work, home, local events, coffee shops, or your next meal. With the Red Line bus rapid transit project and a vote to increase bus service on the November ballot, there is no better time to hop on IndyGo!
