Nashville Transit Triathlon set for Saturday
Nashville Transit Triathlon
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.
The Nashville Transit triathlon begins at 11AM at Music City Central. You can join the Mayor at any point along the way as she:
- Rides the Gallatin Road BRT Lite (Route 56) that departs at 11:15AM from Bay 16 at Music City Central to the East Nashville Library;
- Walks our network of sidewalks to the B-cycle kiosk at Five Points;
- Bikes down Russell Street to East Park for lunch!
Review the full Triathlon route-map.
Transit passes and B-cycle discounts available.
