Take note of Indianapolis express shuttle route changes

A view of Methodist Hospital against a blue sky with clouds

Beginning Monday, March 28, the downtown Indianapolis shuttle service express route will provide service between IU Health Methodist Hospital (1701 N. Senate Ave. entrance) and Indiana University Walther Hall (980 W. Walnut St.). Service to the Riley Barnhill entrance will cease as the skywalk connecting Riley Children's Health to Indiana University Walther Hall and IU Health University Hospital has re-opened.

The Riley Barnhill express route stop was introduced as a temporary stop while the skywalk was closed for construction of the Maternity Tower. Now that the skywalk is open, express route riders may take the shuttle to the Walther Hall stop and use the skywalk to access Riley. The Walther Hall location provides ADA access and shelter for shuttle riders.

Downtown Indianapolis shuttle service riders may also access Riley on the downtown route, which provides service to the Riley Simon Family Tower entrance. No changes have been made to the downtown route.

Riders can view a map of the shuttle route and track the progress of the shuttles via the online tracker or by downloading the Bus Genius mobile app from their app store. Once installed, select “Indiana University Health” to see the shuttles and routes. The downtown and express routes are also detailed below:
