Frequency, walkability keys to great Nashville transit
These principles are the cornerstones for translating nMotion’s multi-decade vision into an action plan. The Nashville Metropolitan Transit Authority’s nMotion proposal offers an inspiring vision of a city and region reconnected by public transportation. The $6 billion plan calls for high-capacity bus and rail lines within the city and connecting Nashville to Murfreesboro, Clarksville, Gallatin and more. But if the public debate focuses entirely on the giant price tag and impressive-looking lines on a map, it will be to the detriment of more subtle and important changes needed to make Nashville more transit oriented.
