Tour Guide Tuesday: AMP

Funded by the local, state and federal government, Nashville is taking a huge step in the right direction regarding public transportation by moving forward with the AMP project. Known as BRT, Bus Rapid Transit, AMP will offer predictable, reliable and convenient public transportation that gets people where they need to go. It will provide fast, frequent service and more than 1.3 million trips a year. A final engineering firm was announced in late 2013 to design the final product and grant writing has commenced, so ready or not, AMP is coming to Nashville.
This project, heavily sponsored by Mayor Dean, has been in the works since 2008. The rapid tranisit bus will provide a straight shot from 5-points on the east side to St. Thomas hospital on West End.
