The Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce is committed to the implementation of a comprehensive transit plan that proactively meets the needs of our growing region. A comprehensive transit plan will create new jobs for our region and make the existing jobs and education accessible to more Middle Tennesseans.
On May 1, Nashville and Davidson County voters will have an opportunity to vote for dedicated funding for transit – a decision that will benefit Nashvillians today and benefit our city and region for generations.
The Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce has endorsed the Let’s Move Nashville Transit Plan and encourages Chamber members to educate their employees on the need for transit and the benefits of the plan.
The Chamber can help businesses get employees the information they need to make an informed decision, and can help employees get registered to vote and make a plan to vote during early voting (April 11 through 26) or at the May 1, 2018 election.

This will be accomplished by engaging business and community leaders in an annual, systematic review of the region’s progress toward implementing regional transportation.
