BRT plans gets $10M federal shot in the arm

The Metropolitan Transit Authority has been approved to receive a $10 million U.S. Department of Transportation grant that will cover more than half of the cost of a project to give buses priority at some of the city's busiest intersections. The money will be used to build out MTA's bus rapid transit plans — which are led by The AMP Saint Thomas-East Nashvile route — as well as build bus shelters, make pedestrian improvements and install real-time bus signs across MTA's network.

The grant is part of a round of funding that will help 52 transportation projects in 37 states deploy $474 million. For more details on the local project, click here. The full list of DOT grants is here.
