Solutions for Transit Corridors

Solution One

  • Use data to establish baseline for performance along key corridors and between growth centers.Implement guidelines for making transportation system decisions according to priority placed on increasing technology and infrastructure to support the following ordered list: 1) walking, bicycling, transit, 2) fleets of electric, fully automated, multiple passenger vehicles, 3) other shared vehicles, 4) vehicles used to deliver goods and freight and 5) low or no occupancy vehicle.

Solution Two

  • Establish zoning regulations that promote mixed-use infill and transit-oriented development and de-emphasize zoning requirements centered on automobiles, such as removing parking minimums. Promote flex lanes to strategically re-purpose right-of-way for traffic flow,transit, deliveries and other modes of mobility or activity, such as during one of Nashville’s many special events. 

Solution Three

  • Incorporate features in existing or new mobile apps and web-based interfaces that promote incentives and alternatives to driving alone

Sollution Four

  • Incorporate into a web and mobile app the means to simplify and promote the MTA EasyRide corporate commuter benefits partnership program, as well as B-cycle memberships for business.

Sollution Five

  • Enhance built environment along corridors with hardware that interacts in real time with all modes of travel; include feedback from low-cost sensors in landscaping and smart LED street lights. Extend the traffic signal timing system and traffic management system beyond current extent to additional corridors and secondary streets

Soution Six

  • Pilot use of and deploy traffic flow sensors that can contribute to traffic flow and cycle traffic lights dependent upon the situation.Create parking districts in priority growth areas with revenues reinvested locally to support enhanced streetscaping and beautification efforts.
