INDIANAPOLIS (August 30, 2015) — Indianapolis International Airport will get 20 electric cars for use by airport travelers starting this fall after the city’s new electric car-sharing program debuts.

The Indianapolis Star reports the airport’s BlueIndy car-charging stations should be in place by October on the fifth floor of its parking garage, across from the terminal.

Airport executive director Mario Rodriguez says the electric BlueIndy cars will be a convenient transportation choice for airport travelers.

BlueIndy is a partnership between Indianapolis and France-based Bollore Group, which makes the electric cars and their batteries.

Indianapolis and BlueIndy will formally roll out the $50 million electric car-sharing partnership on Wednesday during a downtown ceremony.

Twenty-five car-charging stations will open immediately, but BlueIndy eventually plans to provide 500 cars at 200 charging/parking stations across the city.​
