Mayor Barry needs your help for future of Nashville’s transit

Mayor Megan Barry

Megan Barry is calling on Nashville residents to contribute their input when it comes to Nashville’s traffic situation.

In an e-mail Barry stated that every day she is asked what Metro government is doing to reduce traffic and increase transit options.

Nashville MTA/RTA has created three possible scenarios for our nMotion2016 plans based on community input:
scenario 1: Comprehensive Regional System
scenario 2: Bus-Focused Expansion
scenario 3: Modest Improvements

“I want to commend MTA/RTA for the deliberate way they have conducted the nMotion strategic planning process thus far. The people of Nashville and throughout this region are very interested in exploring new strategies for mobility, and nMotion is laying out the options in a thoughtful and inclusive way,” said Barry.

Now Barry says it is her turn to ask you, the people, what are you doing to impact the future of Nashville’s transit system? You can take the nMotion2016 survey by visiting <nmotion.metroquest.com> and tell the Metro government your priorities and preferences for how they move forward.

You can also attend one of the upcoming public meetings:
March 18, 11:30 am-1:30 pm at the Downtown Library
March 28, 5:30-7 pm at the East Park Community Center
March 29, 6:30-8:30 pm with CNAP at the Southeast Community Center
April 2, 9-10:30 am at OneC1ty

There are more public meetings to come, and you can also request a ‘Transit Talk’ for your organization.

The only way we will be able to create a transit system that truly meets the needs of this community is if the people have a say in what that system looks like, and this is the opportunity to do just that.
