NASHVILLE – WeGo Public Transit implemented system-wide service changes Sept. 29 that are a combination of rescheduling, rerouting, combining and route eliminations.
The changes were made to address the agency’s $8.7 million operating budget deficit for the 2019-2020 fiscal year.
Customers can access service change information, including new schedules, in a number of ways:
• Electronic schedules for the new routing were uploaded to wegotransit.com as of Sept. 23.
• Customers can call WeGo customer care to ask specific questions and find out updated trip information.
• General Transit Feed Specification data was pushed out to apps and online resources, including Transit App and WeGo’s own trip planner at ride.nashvillemta.org. Other third-party vendors, such as Google Maps, are in the process of populating the information to their own platforms to help customers plan their trips with the new schedules.
• Schedule racks at WeGo Central updated Sept. 27 with printed schedules for routes with major changes. Printed schedules will be available for all remaining routes by Oct. 4.
Members of the public are encouraged to sign up for WeGo’s newsletter, follow it on social media and visit wegotransit.com to get more information on the finalized service changes.
