The Central Indiana Regional Transportation Authority, a quasi-governmental organization that promotes public transit, said last week that it has launched a petition drive to support local funding options for public transportation.

The drive is an effort to show lawmakers the support for better transit options.

“We know that improved transit is a high priority for many central Indiana residents,” CIRTA executive director Ehren  Bingaman said in a statement. “We want to make sure our lawmakers know it as well.”

The group said it plans to deliver the petitions to lawmakers at the start of the next legislative session in January.
