Clarksville, 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.”
All of the fitness equipment in the center was donated by Nathan Deer of the Clarksville Athletic Club.
“Thanks to the generosity of Mr. Deer, our CTS employees have the opportunity to live healthier lives,” said Mayor McMillan. “Everyone at CTS works so hard to provide the very best service to their customers that it can sometimes be difficult to take care of themselves. I am very excited for the employees who can use this facility and I appreciate Mr. Deer and the Clarksville Athletic Club for making this possible.”
“This is a real win-win situation,” said Mr. Bing. “We are able to provide this center for our employees without using taxpayer’s money to do it.”
