A stop planned for Chattanooga
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) – Getting from Nashville to Atlanta could become less of a headache. Amtrak wants to start a route between the two cities. The stops would Nashville International Airport, Murfreesboro, Tullahoma and Chattanooga.
Clyde Vincent uses the Music City Star on most days to commute from Lebanon from Nashville. “It saves me wear and tear. I don’t have to sit in traffic,” Vincent said while waiting for the Music City Star on Wednesday. He knows how frustrating the drive can be from Nashville to Atlanta. “Most of the time I try to travel to Atlanta in the late night when there’s not a lot of traffic,” Vincent said.
For Vincent, he’s on board with the proposal and hopes it becomes a reality. “Personally, I think they should go with more mass transit around this area,” Vincent said.
