BRT to Connect East & West Nashville

The AMP is a proposed full-service 7.1 mile bus rapid transit (BRT) system that is being planned for one of Nashville's major corridors, Broadway/West End. It will begin at Five Points in East Nashville and extend to the Saint Thomas hospital area in West Nashville. It will allow residents and visitors to move along the corridor faster than they can in a car stuck in traffic. The rapid transit vehicles will stop along the route at attractive stations that have real-time arrival information and self-service fare collection kiosks. On March 4, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) notified Mayor Karl Dean the Amp has been recommended to receive $27 million in President Obama's proposed FY 2015 budget. As with other FTA-funded projects, the balance of the full $75 million requested by Nashville is expected to be awarded in multiple, consecutive fiscal years.

What is the Amp?

  • It is a bus rapid transit (BRT) line that connects Nashville from east to west.
  • It combines the quality of rail transit with the cost-effectiveness of rapid buses.
  • It will provide fast, frequent service and more than 1.3 million trips a year.
  • It will serve as an important economic-development engine.

A U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) report finds bus rapid transit systems generally increase ridership and provide improved service over previous transit service on the same route. The systems reviewed by the GAO reported "increases in ridership after one year of service and reduced average travel times of 10 to 35 percent over previous bus services."
