City partners with IndyGo to disperse face coverings

IndyGo and the city of Indianapolis will distribute face coverings at the Carson Transit Center

INDIANAPOLIS (Inside INdiana Business) — The city of Indianapolis will work with IndyGo to distribute free face coverings to residents at the Julia M. Carson Transit Center. The distribution is through the city’s free face covering program, which makes coverings available to any resident unable to get one on their own. The city is talking with other potential partners to supply more, with almost 190,000 set to be handed out. 

“Face coverings represent one of the most basic yet crucial strategies to halting the spread of COVID-19,” said Matt Giffin, deputy director for strategic initiatives in the Office of Public Health and Safety. “Our partnership with IndyGo will enhance the safety of riders, their families, and the Indianapolis community at large.”

A pop-up station will be set up outside the Carson Transit Center from 8 am to 7 pm Monday through Friday and from 9 am to 12 pm on Saturday, while supplies last. 

The city has set aside $3 million for the program, which was included in the Federal CARES Act. Any city resident wanting a face covering may request one by clicking here
