WeGo Breaks Ground on North Nashville Transit Center

WeGo Public Transit has celebrated the groundbreaking of the North Nashville Transit Center in Nashville, Tennessee.

This project is part of a mission to increase access to public transit across Nashville while reducing the need to transfer Downtown at the WeGo Central Transit Center.

The new facility will include a waiting room, restrooms, wi-fi and multiple bus bays serving several routes.

WeGo will also provide real-time bus arrival information, QuickTicket vending machines, bicycle storage, scooter corrals, and pick up/drop off locations for Lyft, Uber and taxis.

WeGo CEO Steve Bland said:

“This transit centre is just the latest step in a long-term plan to better connect Nashville neighborhoods through public transit. It’s an improvement in our service and in the customer experience. We plan to add more transit centers and increased connections across the city.”

A total of 17 million USD is being invested in the new transit centre. Construction is expected to be complete in spring 2024.

This project supports the Middle Tennessee Region’s 25-year integrated and multimodal transportation strategy, nMotion, alongside the Metro Nashville Transportation Plan.

Nashville MTA Board Chair Gail Carr Williams said:

“Public transit provides access for many aspects of our lives; it safely gets us to work, entertainment, family gatherings, and, of course, health care appointments. The Dr. Ernest Rip Patton, Jr. North Nashville Transit Center will serve not only as a transit hub but also a thriving community hub for Nashville residents for many years to come.”

WeGo Transit has also initiated other projects to increase access to public and multimodal transport, such as pairing bus services with micromobility vehicles.
