Metro recommends $6 billion transit plan for Nashville region
The report is in and the verdict is big. Connect Nashville and Clarksville with commuter rail. Build light rail on four busy Nashville corridors. Install bus rapid transit on three other major roadways. There’s also recommendations for “freeway BRT” and bus-on-shoulder service on Middle Tennessee interstates, a new airport transit network, new regional transit hubs, and improvements to the city’s existing buses for more frequent, efficient and easier service.
