The Greater Nashville Regional Council (GNRC) is the main governmental agency responsible for the South Corridor Study.


The Nashville Area MPO and local elected officials first developed and adopted the long range vision for transit in Middle Tennessee in 2010, and carried this vision forward as part of the MPO's 2040 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), Middle Tennessee Connected. The transit vision is a necessary part of the region's preparation for the increasing competitive global economy, and proactively addresses the growing concerns about increased traffic congestion.


The study is evaluating transportation options along the 35-mile corridor between downtown Nashville and the city of Columbia in Maury County.


The study intends to provide a series of short-, mid-, and long-term recommendations to implement a vision for transportation and rapid transit in the South Corridor.
