This is how CIRTA describes its mission:
The Central Indiana Regional Transportation Authority (CIRTA) is working to improve existing commuter options and better connect Indianapolis with the rest of Central Indiana, specifically Marion, Hamilton, Hancock, Shelby, Johnson, Morgan, Hendricks, Boone, Delaware and Madison counties.CIRTA's website includes several strong pleas for mass transit including the very expensive light rail.
This is how Commuter Connect (the ride sharing group) describes itself on its website:
Commuter Connect, a FREE service that can help you save money
Commuter Connect (formerly Central Indiana Commuter Services or CICS) offers alternative transportation solutions to area employers and commuters in Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Madison, Marion, Morgan and Shelby counties, such as: carpooling, vanpooling, riding transit, biking and walking.
Our mission is to reduce air pollution and traffic congestion. We provide a valuable benefit to the community by promoting greater mobility, and reducing pollution and congestion in Central Indiana. We promote a cleaner environment and better quality of life.
We are a service that helps employees find affordable and convenient transportation to work.As these are at the very least quasi-government, if not government, entities I'm not going to bother blurring the license plate.
Of course, since Bartholomew County (Columbus) is not on the list of counties served by CIRTA or Commuter Connect, there is the additional question of what the van is doing there.
