MTA Sylvan Park Route Preserved


Following customer feedback, the Metro Transit Authority has decided to preserve its bus route (#13) that runs through Sylvan Park along 46th Avenue and Murphy Road. The Tennessean reported on this development this morning.

MTA will be suspending service for the rest of its Route 13, which currently runs along Croley Street and Annex Road north of Charlotte Pike. (See the map above for details.) It isn't clear from the Tennessean's story exactly how the route will run, but it appears that it will be a loop that does not continue west beyond 46th Avenue and Charlotte Pike. Anyone wanting to head west at that intersection would need to transfer to the Charlotte Pike bus route (#10) to do so. I'm not sure if the revised route 13 would still travel along I-40 during part of its journey or not.

MTA has elected to rename this route "Sylvan Park" because it will no longer reach further into West Nashville. The route is currently known as "West Nashville/Croley." This route change is still pending until the MTA Board approves it later this week.
