Nashville Transit Triathlon set for Saturday

From sidewalks to greenways to buses, all modes of transportation eventually connect to form a complete trip. And as it so happens, all of Nashville’s most important master-plans for the greenest and cleanest modes are due for a major update this year.

To help the city make the best possible plans around our future mobility needs, we need to hear from you: Mayor Megan Barry invites you to Nashville’s Transit Triathlon on Saturday, August 27 from 11am-1pm.

Join the Mayor in riding the bus, walking, and biking your way to East Park at 600 Woodland Street. There, you can enjoy free food, family activities, and giveaways while providing input on Metro’s mobility plans: nMotion (transit), WalkNBike(sidewalks & bikeways) and Plan to Play (parks & greenways) on a giant map of Nashville.
