WeGo Transit and the Alliance for Green Hills will host a community meeting Dec. 10 at the Church of Christ in Green Hills for those wishing to learn more about plans for a new transit center on Hillsboro Pike.

The transit center planned in front of Hillsboro High School will offer expanded capacity for buses as well as new amenities, such as larger shelter areas and improved lighting, according to WeGo Transit. The project, a collaboration between WeGo Transit and Metro Nashville Public Schools, is planned in conjunction with the $89 million renovation of Hillsboro High School.


WeGo Transit representatives will be at the meeting to provide an overview of the project as well as information on service plans, the design process and overall maintenance.

District 25 Council Member Russ Pulley and Metro Nashville Public Schools representatives will also be at the meeting to answer questions from community members.

The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at 3805 Granny White Pike, Nashville. To learn more about the meeting, see the latest newsletter for the Alliance for Green Hills.
