  2. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    I also give it 40%, down from 50/50 prior to mayor Barry's sexual misconduct
  3. Nashville Bits and Pieces

    For $750k.... that "artist" is still wondering how he or she pulled that off.

  5. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Honestly, I would be fine with metro laying out dedicated lanes throughout the entire city (in neighborhoods that would be receptive of them of course). Direct dedicated lane from downtown to Vandy to Airport. On these lines, the existing buses would have much faster service being that they would not be in traffic. Metro could charge a fee for car pools and other ride sharing services (in easily identifiable cars). These ride sharing services would also enjoy not being in traffic, and could have the benefit of getting out of dedicated lanes if needed. Metro could partner with large companies like HCA, Bridgestone, Asurion could pay for the right to use the dedicated lanes with cars/buses carrying their employees in and out of downtown to certain areas. Could be a great marketing tool for companies relocating in the downtown area. Theoretically, this transit implementation could cost of $0. I would like to think we could buy more modern buses and spend money for painting the dedicated lanes, all for about $20MM dollars.

    BRT with dedicated lanes on Donelson, Charlotte, Nolensville Road. I think the tunnel is nice, not a necessity. More buses commuting from suburbs on shoulders of the interstate.

    NYC is the closest example to a city with driverless cars - you get in an uber/cab and get out. You don't deal with parking etc. NYC has terrible traffic, even with all the subways, but at least with the subways you are getting where you need to be faster. Point being, I cannot stand the "driverless cars will solve everything" assertion. I also don't think we need 26 miles of light rail... we need a medium of both.

    Nashville has sold out the exhibition game at First Tennessee Park against Atlanta United FC.

    Does anyone know why L27 is already under renovation after being open for barely a year?

    Does anyone think Mayor Barry's situation puts nashville's MLS bid in jeopardy?
  11. Repurposed/revitalized historical buildings in Nashville

    My wedding was at The Cordelle. Incredible venue.
  12. Greer Stadium site redevelopment

    Could be Nashville's version of Coit Tower in San Fran.
  13. Soccer in Nashville

    I wonder if Nashville will be in 2019? I think FC Cincinnati is the most ready "team", and can play in Nippert Stadium temporarily, but from browsing twitter feeds, I am not sure if: 1.) Oakley site is preferred by MLS. There have been articles about FC Cincinnati trying to buy land in the West End neighborhood (closer to downtown) 2.) If MLS2Austin is a done deal, meaning Columbus Crew potentially staying. Would MLS want both Columbus and Cincinnati? Does anyone know what is next for our stadium construction?
