Nashville Begins Alerting Bus Riders To Route Changes And Cuts

Sep 9, 2019

Major changes to Nashville's bus system are beginning to sink in for riders. Route shifts and some eliminations go into effect the final Sunday of the month.

The WeGo transit agency has started posting new signs at nearly 1,000 bus stops.

And the cuts are severe enough that the agency also published a 24-page "survival guide," with details and new maps.

The guide shows which nine bus routes are being eliminated — including the free circulator buses downtown — as well as more than two dozen other routes undergoing adjustments, schedule changes or instances in which two lines are being combined into one.

The service changes also will mean a reorganization at the main downtown bus station, where riders will be getting on and off at different bus bays.

All of the specifics are online at www.WeGoTransit.com, and officials will be handing out printed survival guides at the main station from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday.

The agency says 98% of riders that see changes should still have a bus stop within a quarter-mile.
