As I arrived at work this morning my esteemed co-worker and fellow Commuter Central blogger, Steve Hoyt-McBeth, was all fired up. He giddily called me over to his computer where he was exploring the Indianapolis Cultural Trust's website and their new innovative greenway trail.
This trail is no cowpath stuck out on the outskirts of town. The Cultural Trail links many of the central city's vibrant cultural and employment centers and provides a safe and, frankly, beautiful corridor for walkers and cyclists through downtown. Will this trail become the backbone of a city-wide trail system? That's not in the cards yet, but the trail could really lead to a renaissance of active transportation in Indianapolis, thus changing the current transportation culture.
