Regional Symposium: Implementing Transit
October 29, 2012
To help build a better understanding of the necessary steps to turn plans into action, on Oct. 25-26, 2012, the Nashville Area MPO & its regional partners held an educational event designed to help stakeholders more deeply explore the nuts-and-bolts of a modernized vision for mass transit. Participants heard from national experts and peer metro regions on lessons learned in the areas of: transit ballot referendums, real estate and economic development along BRT and rail corridors, infill redevelopment and minimization of sprawl in order to maximize ridership and use of fiscal resources, innovative funding solutions, the new federal surface transportation program (MAP-21), and more.
