Music City Central Transit Station
Metropolitan Transit Authority
Nashville’s Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) sought an innovative downtown transit center solution to replace a congested, dated on-street bus transfer area near the State Capitol. Their vision encompassed a multi-function transit hub that would not only be the focal point of transit service in the metropolitan area, but also provide a public amenity to enhance the face and street life of downtown Nashville, a.k.a., Music City USA. This multi-function transit hub serves 14,000 riders a day and provides municipal parking, retail/office space and a pubic plaza. TranSystems acted as an extension of the MTA staff in selecting a site and planning the facility. The firm served as the prime consultant, co-architect and engineer during the design and construction phases.
