Bus, Train Service Suspended Monday

Channel 5 News Posted: May 02, 2010 6:26 PM CDT NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Commuter bus and train services have been suspended for Monday because of the record flooding in Nashville. Officials with the Metropolitan Transit Authority have been monitoring weather conditions throughout the weekend. Bus service was already suspended Sunday. Many of the streets that buses use are still under water and deemed not safe. Services from the Music City Star have been suspended due to damaged rail tracks. A bridge at Highway 231 near Short Street near downtown Lebanon was damaged, making it impossible for the Music City Star to pass into that area. Construction crews have been working in the area, but repairs were not expected to be complete before the morning commute. Gray Line buses will be available for those who usually ride the Music City Star from every pick-up location station except the Martha Station at State Route 109 and Powell Grove Road. A fleet of MTA buses has been relocated from a garage on Nestor Street to a bus lot operated by Metro Nashville Public Schools near the fairgrounds. Customer service operators are on duty to answer questions at 615-862-5950.
