Janus Developmental Services, operator of Hamilton County Express Public Transit, welcomes Christy Campoll as director of transportation.

Before joining Janus, Campoll worked for a private motor coach company managing contracted bus service. Prior to that position, she was employed by the Central Indiana Regional Transportation Authority where she facilitated regional coordination among transportation providers in CIRTA’s 10-county service area.

Janus has also announced a recent grant award in the amount of $2,000 from the Central Indiana Bicycling Association. This funding has enabled Janus to purchase and install bike racks on two Hamilton County Express buses. The addition of the bike racks will allow bus riders to transport their bicycles as they ride the bus to destinations throughout the community.

Christina Sorensen, president and CEO of Janus, said, “We have had inquiries from riders who wanted to utilize bike racks on our buses, as has been offered by IndyGo for some time. When we learned about the opportunity to get funding from CIBA, it was the perfect time to add this convenience for our riders. We are very excited to be able to offer expanded biking opportunities for both employment and recreational purposes.”

Hamilton County Express, an origin to destination service, has been serving the Hamilton County community since 2007 and has increased ridership each year. In 2014, the bus service provided 48,640 transportation trips throughout the county.

The organization is celebrating 36 years of providing individuals with disabilities the opportunity to participate and contribute within the community.
