Try taking the bus from Greenwood to Carmel, and the trip would take at least two hours, including a half-hour you’d have to spend at a bus stop.

You’d be stranded at 96th Street, until you were able to summon a dial-a-ride bus to come pick you up.

But a new regional plan for mass transit calls for a much quicker, more direct route. Potentially, you could hop on a rapid-transit bus, or a bus that operates like a train, and go from Greenwood Park Mall to the Palladium in Carmel.

Mass transit advocacy group Indy Connect is proposing a “red line” route that would take Greenwood residents all the way across Indianapolis to the far north suburbs. You could take a rapid-transit bus to stops across the city, including the University of Indianapolis, downtown, the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis and Broad Ripple.
