IndyGo and the Indianapolis Public Transportation Foundation (IPTF) recently announced several annual awards. The foundation named AARP Indiana as the 2021 winner of the annual Partnership Award.
The Partnership Award, sponsored by IPTF, is meant to honor a person, group or organization that has supported IndyGo with making progress and attaining agency goals. Winners of this award show extraordinary efforts to uplift the agency in relation to policy; teammate or program support; community service; funding; impacting the city of Indianapolis; and overall commitment to IndyGo efforts.
“IPTF is pleased to sponsor the annual IndyGo Partnership Award and recognize AARP Indiana as the inaugural recipient,” Emily Lovison, IPTF executive director said. “AARP Indiana is a true champion for transit in Indianapolis as demonstrated by its support, sponsoring two new bus stop shelters and continued advocacy efforts for public transportation.”
“A person’s destination shouldn’t be based on their ability or desire to drive a car,” said Sarah Waddle, AARP Indiana State Director. “Older residents of Indianapolis deserve transportation options that enhance their personal independence, allow them to age in place and help them engage in our city’s civic, economic and social life. IndyGo provides that critical option. AARP Indiana is honored by this recognition, and we look forward to our continued partnership with IndyGo in making accessible transit available for residents of all ages.”
