Smart Commute by Rail

Middle Tennesseans have a new option for avoiding congested highways and annoying delays. With the launch of the Music City Star commuter rail service in September 2006, riders enjoy a comfortable, on-time commute, while saving on parking, gas and automobile costs. This commuting alternative not only results in reduced stress for the commuter, it also reduces traffic congestion, improves air quality, and encourages economic development in our communities.
