NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Mayor Karl Dean will ride on MTA’s 6 Lebanon Road bus route on Wednesday morning as part of his “Mayor On Board” bus rides, which take place on a regular basis throughout Davidson County.
The bus rides allow the mayor to experience each of the major MTA routes and promote Nashville’s bus system as a transportation alternative.
Mayor Dean and MTA Chief Executive Officer Paul Ballard, both regular bus riders, will board the 6 Lebanon Road bus at the Hermitage station at 7:25 a.m. The bus will arrive at the Music City Central downtown transit station in Bay 10 at 8:25 a.m. A map with a complete list of stops for this trip is attached.
In May, the 6 Lebanon Road route recorded a monthly ridership of nearly 18,000 passenger trips. For the year, MTA ridership is up 7 percent.
