    Gotta Have Wheels

    by EvaWalls Written Mar 21, 2003

    Not having a good reliable public transit system is something I really hate about home. If you want to go anywhere, you really need a car. There are some exceptions...

    Staying in the Downtown area, you can walk to any number of shops, bars, clubs, sporting events, restaurants, etc. Broad Ripple Village is fun to walk around, but there are no hotels of which I am aware.

    Otherwise, you will need a car. Driving in Indianapolis is easy. At worst, if you need over, or cut someone off, just wave. 9 times out of 10, they'll wave or nod back.

    Currently Indy is experiencing the Hyperfix. They have closed down most of the highways through the downtown to make some much needed repairs. Traveling through Indy is almost impossible, unless you know the sidestreets. If you must pass through, the suggested routes are on I-465. However, this is also going through some major overhaul on the east/northeast side
    It's scheduled to be completed in August, at which point the traffic should lighten up. Average additional commute from the southside is 15 minutes. This decreases the earlier that you get on the road.

    Indianapolis is quite laid out, and the North Side and downtown are not walking distance from one another. Cabs are not popular and hard to hail on the street. The East-West streets on the North Side are numbered (most of the major ones) going up from downtown. The N-S streets do not have numbers, and the South Side streets do not either. This is really not an issue, because the North Side and downtown is where everything is, and the N-S street's names become easy to remember. Meridian, Keystone, and College are the three main North Side arteries, with Meridian having the most traffic.
