Nashville

February 4, 2011

I’ve been out of town for the last week, resulting in the total lapse of posting. I had full intentions of posting, and I thought of y’all often. Or, like, once. Maybe twice.

Anyways, I was in Nashville, and while I had a list of fun transit things to check out, I didn’t get around to them. But I did manage to take a few fun pictures, so that’s your souvenir.

An MTA bus. I considered hoping on it to get get dinner, but since I was only walking two blocks, it seemed silly. Or lazy.

A lovely bike where I did manage to get some lunch. I need a custom paint job on mine….

The downtown circulator, a free MTA shuttle service.

Look at all the bike racks at the Vanderbilt Medical Center! And with bikes, too!

I love Nashville, and I want to go back to ride the buses and check out the Landport. When I asked my Dad’s nurse about the Landport, he had no idea what I was talking about. He’s lived in Nashville since 1982.

    Superdorky note:

    That’s actually not an MTA bus. MTA lost use of a sizeable portion of its fleet when the Cumberland River flooded last year (its operating facility resides – for now – on Nestor Street, on the banks of the river). Other agencies helped out by donating buses (or long-term loan, I’m not sure). These included MATA, of Memphis TN, and SORTA (aka Metro) of Cinninati, OH. The bus with the blue and purple stripe and funky “M” logo is a borrowed SORTA/Metro bus, dressed up in the old SORTA paint scheme and logo. Kinda neat, actually!

    This summer, the MTA Board voted to purchase a new property nowhere near the river.
