Mayor Joe Hogsett and the Department of Public Works on Thursday announced a plan to spend about $450,000 that has been collected by scooter companies since last year on the improvements. The companies are responsible for contributing $1 per scooter per day to a multimodal infrastructure fund. The goal is to create more so-called “neighborways” in Indianapolis.

“This expansion allows more residents who want or need to travel by bike to do so,” Hogsett said in a written statement, “which means a healthier lifestyle, less pollution, and fewer cars on overstressed roads. Expanding bike connectivity is a win for us all.”
