Indianapolis International Airport (IND)
Orientation and Maps
(Indianapolis, Indiana (IN), USA)
A city best known for its motor racing history, the Indianapolis 500 race dates back to 1911. Towards the end of the last century, much of Indianapolis was completely renovated and this city has completely reinvented itself, with modern amenities, a well laid out city center, and many impressive museums, monuments and large sporting venues.
To the southwest of the city center and off the I-465 interstate, Indianapolis International Airport (IND) is linked by the No. 8 Washington bus. Greyhound buses operate along South Illinois Street and feature several daily runs, which travel to and from Cincinnati, Chicago and other prominent cities. Local buses in Indianapolis are run by IndyGo, with the service tending to be less comprehensive at the weekends.
