One year after its inception, the Music City Circuit is seeing very respectable ridership, according to Metro Transit Authority officials.
The free downtown circulator, which offers Blue, Green and Purple lines, launched March 29, 2010, to much fanfare and has met expectations for its first 12 months of operation, according to Patricia Harris-Morehead, MTA director of communications.
This past March, MCC enjoyed its best single-month ridership to date, with 20,510 passengers (based on preliminary numbers). The mark eclipsed the previous single-month record of 19,737 passenger trips, set in July 2010. March 2011 also represented the first time the three-line circulator has topped 20,000 passenger trips in a single month. Click here to read more.
