Clarksville Transit System (CTS) opens Fitness Center

 

Clarksville Transit System - CTSClarksville, TN – Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan joined Director of Transportation Arthur Bing and members of the Clarksville Transit System (CTS) recently for a ribbon cutting officially opening CTS’s new fitness center.

“Our bus drivers rarely get a break during the day,” explained Mr. Bing. “They don’t get a lunch break and often grab something quick to eat between routes. As a result, they don’t always get to move enough or eat as healthy as they’d like. This fitness center is one way we can help by giving them a place to exercise after their routes. This will help many of our employees.”
