Indianapolis, the racing capital of the world, is home to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway that hosts the Indy 500 every year.

Indianapolis is also known for its sports enthusiasm, a booming downtown, and the world’s largest children’s museum. Attracting people from across the world, Indianapolis is a central hub for countless cultures and communities.

Indy is the most populous city in the state of Indiana and has a long history of transportation. A majority of people use cars as their primary means of transportation. The average commute time is 24.8 minutes, which is below the national average, and a testament to the fact that Indy is a great place to drive!

A Predictable Weather System

Indianapolis is considered one of the most neutral weather locations. With winters being not too cold and summers not too hot, Indy has just enough precipitation per year to make every season bearable and fun.

With an average temperature of 53.1°F, Indianapolis enjoys the layover winds of Chicago. With a perfect combination of sunshine and rain, Indy provides a smooth driving experience all year round.

An Economic Powerhouse

The Indianapolis metropolitan area is home to major industries including finance, manufacturing, insurance, and professional services. With a population of almost 853,000 people and only 2.4% working as professional drivers, Indy has a need for delivery speed. The low commute time and good traffic flow makes Indianapolis a great place to drive professionally. 

This is exactly why on-demand delivery companies like Dispatch work so well for people. The ability to choose your own hours, earn good money, and be your own boss is a driver’s dream!

A City of Cars

Despite an abundance of public transportation options, people still prefer to drive their own vehicle. Since Indianapolis is the central hub for racing, it’s no wonder why it has major highways crossing through it. These highway systems cater to the massive influx of people during the Indy 500. With four major interstate highways, Indy has one of the most robust road systems in the country.

All in all, Indianapolis is one of the best places to work as a professional driver. If you're looking to start or grow your driving career - join Dispatch today!
