6:Slow Connections/Mobility

Indy’s compact and walkable downtown is a strategic advantage that helps visitors easily get around and experience more destinations. Research also indicates that people spend more time and money when getting around by foot or bike than by car. By improving this connectivity, we can expand on this advantage, connect visitors to more of the authentic local places they desire, and expand their economic impact.
