Report calls for big action on regional transit connections

Middle Tennessee leaders need to get to work on expanding transit options for the region's suburbanites, according to a new report from the Regional Transportation Authority of Middle Tennessee. Says RTA CEO Steve Bland: "If you believe we’re going to grow by a million people, tweaks — small improvements, short-term improvements — aren’t going to be anywhere near enough to maintain the quality of life that we’re used to here."

Tony Gonzalez at WPLN has the story and the report is available here.
