The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) recently honored the Indianapolis Public Transportation Corporation (IndyGo) with the prestigious Gold Standard Award for security in its bus system. IndyGo is one of five transit agencies nationwide to receive the recognition this year.

The Gold Standard Award is the highest level of recognition TSA can give to a transit agency for achieving top scores during an annual review of 17 categories of security and emergency preparedness elements. The review evaluates several aspects of a transit agency’s operations, including its security plan, security training, drills and exercise programs, public outreach efforts and background check procedures.

“We are proud to collaborate with IndyGo toward our shared commitment to transportation safety,” TSA Acting Regional Security Director Tony Metcalf said. “This Gold Standard Award honors IndyGo’s leadership in mass transit security and is well deserved.”

“IndyGo is committed to connecting the community to economic and cultural opportunities through safe, reliable, and accessible mobility experiences. It covers 400 square miles in Marion County, IN,” according to a press release.

“Security is always our top priority at IndyGo,” IndyGo Interim President and CEO Jennifer Pyrz said. “To receive this prestigious recognition from the TSA solidifies the work we do daily to ensure our riders and teammates are safe and secure, whether they’re riding the bus or spending time in one of our facilities.”
