Nashville Metropolitan Transit Authority Facilities Assessment/Master Plan

Nashville, Tennessee

The Nashville Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) wished to evaluate and assess six of its strategic facilities. MTA also wished to conduct an overall assessment of their plans and strategic growth to help them better plan for the future. Nashville MTA currently operates 225 buses, which includes 60 paratransit vehicles and 10 electric buses. All of MTA vehicles are stored outside, except for the electric buses, which are stored and charged indoors. Additional charging stations are provided for the electric buses along their service route, which is the downtown route called the Music City Circuit.

MDG, as part of the Team, assisted with this multi-phase approach to evaluating the condition of each existing facility. HDR | MDG helped assess the potential for expansion based on the strategic growth of the transportation fleet. From these findings, the Team developed a master plan to identify opportunities and recommendations that help MTA plan for anticipated growth at these facilities and overall.
