Free shuttles shorten the walk

Since the opening of the new Heart Center parking lot, two shuttle buses have been operating on the east side of Indianapolis campus. In most cases, patients, employees and visitors are met by one of the shuttle buses as soon as they park their cars in the new Heart Center lot. Primarily, passengers are taken to the Heart Center front entrance, where they can access that facility and other parts of the campus. By request, the shuttles will take passengers to other entrances around the St. Francis Hospital—Indianapolis campus.

The shuttle buses – which each accommodate up to 12 passengers – operate from 5 a.m. to midnight Monday through Friday. The buses are equipped with a wheelchair lift.

“We offer the shuttle bus service for safety and convenience,” said John Ross, St. Francis—Indianapolis campus administrator. “The drivers make regular circuits through the parking lots and try their best to meet each car to offer a ride to the Heart Center or any other entrance on campus.”

There is never any charge to ride the shuttle buses.
