Where can you go with Rapid Bus Service? !
The Bmx route spans 13 miles from the Adam Benjamin, Jr. Metro Center all the way to the Lake County Government Building with 20 main stops and 4 “flag” stops. New this year, three stops were added to the Bmx route—the Lake County Government Building, Adam Benjamin Jr. VA Outpatient Clinic, and Purdue Research Park/Ivy Tech Campus.
The buses run every 30 minutes and trips will increase to every 20 minutes as ridership grows.
Northwest Indiana's First Rapid Bus Service.
Here's what makes the difference.
Going where you want, fast. The Bmx runs faster because it only stops at designated bus stops near where you live, work, or transfer to connecting buses and trains. Stops are spaced to minimize walking and maximize your safety. Most stops on the Broadway Metro Express include special bypass lanes to allow buses to load passengers much more quickly.
Enjoy the arts. Many of our bus shelters include artwork from local artists. Beyond getting you to your destination quickly and safely, you’ll feel more comfortable at our bus stops with more visible signage, informative maps, and shelters with solar lighting.
Enjoy Livable Broadway
The Livable Broadway Regional Plan
Gary Public Transportation Corporation commissioned the Livable Broadway Regional Plan (LBRP) to assess opportunities for improving bus service within Gary, Merrillville, and Crown Point while enhancing economic development, environment, and land use and promoting livability within the corridor.
- Development. New businesses are encouraged to come to Broadway and partner with transit for improved access for customers and employees.
- Activity. Community organizations are encouraged to partner with transit to make station locations vibrant. Early successes include the Broadway Metro Farmers Markets program.
- Artwork. Select bus stops include artwork by local artists, reflecting upon the elements that make Northwest Indiana great.
Thank you to our partners for support in making the LBRP a reality.
