The Regional Transportation Authority of Middle Tennessee (RTA) is finalizing the Northwest Corridor Transit Study by presenting several options and ideas to better connect people who live, work, and travel along this corridor between Clarksville and Nashville.

This study is being developed in coordination with nMotion 2016, the strategic planning effort being undertaken by MTA and RTA to expand transit service in Nashville and throughout Middle Tennessee.

The study recommendations will be presented this summer. It will include suggested transit modes for enhanced, cost effective improvements in the corridor to connect travelers to destinations (work, school, shopping, entertainment, etc.), potential station locations, and transit -oriented development concepts.

The study will determine the scope and breadth of the project, concentrating on components such as ridership, capital, operations and maintenance costs, and the benefits and impacts of the proposed project.
