Nashville Metropolitan Transit Authority’s short-term summer bus schedule and route adjustments (ahem: reductions) are soon over!
News Channel 5 reports that the Nashville MTA will roll out 31 new buses and 19 new vans over the next two months beginning Thursday, July 12, 2018.
Current ridership is around 25,000* riders daily. That’s a lot of people who rely on the safety and reliability of our public transit. So, this is a welcome change even though getting there has meant some short-lived disruption in service. We look forward to riding on these new buses!
Also, note the work Nashville MTA is doing to engage more local artists and inspire riders. Hope you get a chance to see and/or ride the Joy Bus before it is out of commission! If you have photos of the Joy Bus, please post to social media and tag @NashvilleMTA and @TAllianceMidTN!
*Previously, we had ‘17,000 riders daily’ but were contacted for correction: 17,000 people pass through MCC every day, but Nashville MTA sees 25,000 riders per day–there were 9.193 million riders in FY2017.
[…] So, we cheered when Nashville MTA added 31 new buses to routes. […]
