Southeast Corridor High-Performance Transit Study

This paper describes how the Nashville region has spent the past two years studying a 30 mile corridor for potential High-Performance Transit investments. The study was managed by the Nashville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and guided by a steering committee of technical representatives from transit agencies, state agencies, and planning departments throughout the region. The need for transportation improvements in the Southeast Corridor has been addressed in several studies over the past decade. The Southeast Corridor High-Performance Alternatives Analysis is the culmination of the region’s vision to provide a multi-county transit system that will enhance mobility and provide a safe and efficient multimodal network. While the study period covered a 20+ year timeframe, the study conclusions include short-term, implementable steps, or phasing that can lead to the longer-term development of the corridor. The study conclusions recommend a phased approach for implementing Bus Rapid Transit.
