Nashville MTA Ends Bus Rapid Transit Plans
"Nashville MTA announced Thursday afternoon that it will cease work on the Amp [pdf], the controversial proposed rapid bus transit system," reports Alanna Autler.
In plain terms, Autler explains that the "announcement essentially kills any hopes of the bus system coming to Nashville."
MTA CEO Steve Bland promised to continue strategic planning efforts for rapid transit in Nashville. The article goes into more detail about the political debate that preceded the death of The Amp, which opponents argued "would snarl traffic in an already crowded area."
