We believe in transparency -- it's a core tenet of our organization. Data is one key to the analysis in our plans. You can download any data here and use it for your analysis in your plans or projects. (Most files are zipped shapefiles.)

The Common Data Request booklet provides additional background information on the MPO, including population, households, median income, and employment for the Indianapolis region. Please be patient when it is loading because the file is very large.
In September 2019, the Indianapolis MPO conducted bicycle counts across Central Indiana in conjunction with the Regional Bikeways Plan. The 2019 Regional Bikeways Counts report includes the amount of cyclists that were documented at each site, why the site was selected by the MPO, and a map of count locations.
The Regional Pedestrian Plan, approved in February 2020, included an inventory of sidewalks and sidepaths along roadways with an INDOT functional classification of 2-6 (excluded Interstates and Local streets). The inventory also mapped the "gaps" in the walkway network. Scoring criteria based on regional priorities were applied to these gaps, which resulted in a "heat map" indicating areas that should be prioritized for walkway investment when funding sources are limited.
This training includes a package of data, a training manual, and training videos that cities, towns, and counties in Central Indiana can use to apply this analysis at their own local level. Which allows them to add walkways along local streets into the inventory, and modify the scoring criteria, if they wish, to match local priorities.
