Metro bus hours will be extended next month in targeted neighborhoods where workers living far from their jobs are in need of transportation.
The money to add additional service comes from $800,000 in state and federal money. It will pay for an additional 30 hours of bus service in North and East Nashville.
The push for the additional service came from a study done by MillsWORKS, a job training program developed by the Mills Corporation, in conjunction with many public, private, and neighborhood organizations. While Opry Mills, owned by the Mills Corporation, will benefit from the service, it is meant to make a difference to a wide number of businesses in the area.
