Officials with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) presented WeGo Public Transit with $5 million on September 12, 2023, for a project that will build a regional mobility center in Antioch. The funds are part of $17.5 million that has been raised thus far. The Antioch Transit Center (ATC) will be part of the Metro Nashville redevelopment plan for the former Global Mall property.
When completed, the regional mobility center will feature between six and eight bus bays with seating in a climate-controlled waiting area with amenities. It will help riders conveniently transfer between routes and modes, including pedestrian and bike access, car and van pool pick-up, car and bike sharing options, and it will include a park and ride. The site is on the southern end of the highest ridership bus route in the WeGo system- Route 55 Murfreesboro Pike. WeGo will implement new local and express services when ATC opens. The project was originally called the Hickory Hollow Transit Center (HHTC) when the grant award was first announced.
