Indianapolis is a hub for several terminal, marketing and engineering operations.
Located in the center of Indiana, Indianapolis is within a day's drive of half of the nation's population. Enhancing this accessibility are more segments of interstate than any other U.S. city. The convergence of Interstate 69, I-70, I-74, I-65, and I-465 have helped Indianapolis to become well known as the "Crossroads of America." The greater Indianapolis area is the 12th largest city in the United States, with a population of more than 800,000 and a greater metro area nearing 1.5 million residents.
Indianapolis also boasts three of the largest single-day sporting events in the world: the Indy 500, the Brickyard 400 and Pole Day for the Indy 500. Indianapolis has the largest children's museum in the world and the oldest continuously running community theater in the country. The city is the home of Union Station, the nation's first union railway depot, and has vibrant, thriving downtown. Indianapolis consistently ranks as one of the nation's cleanest, and safest cities and its cost of living and unemployment rates remain below the national average.
