Metro recommends $6 billion transit plan for Nashville region

The report is in and the verdict is big.

Connect Nashville and Clarksville with commuter rail. Build light rail on four busy Nashville corridors. Install bus rapid transit on three other major roadways[...]

"Make no small plans, for they have no magic to stir men's blood".

I hope they prioritize LRT. The existing commuter rail line only moves a few hundred people daily. It's barely worth keeping so much as expanding.

But an underground light rail system under the city's core with frequent service to densely populating neighborhoods in a city that's growing rapidly both up and out seems like a good idea.

$6 billion is a lot, but I think that's a consequence of it being expensive to build stuff in this country rather than this being a wasteful plan. 15 years ago light rail lines cost a few hundred million, then the prices have inflated ever since.
