With the some of the highest ridership within the WeGo service area, the bus stop located adjacent to Hillsboro High School is too small to accommodate all of the waiting passengers. In collaboration with Metro Nashville Public Schools, the Tennessee Department of Transportation, and the Nashville Department of Transportation, WeGo is bringing riders a transit center to help relieve the pressure.
The Hillsboro Transit Center will include covered bus bays, Ticket Vending Machines, lighting improvements, real-time bus information, ADA infrastructure, a climate-controlled waiting room, exterior waiting areas, phone charging stations, and WiFi. This area is currently served by 7 Hillsboro Pike with future expansions of nearby routes, including 17 12th Avenue South.
The project is funded with federal and local sources and is scheduled for completion in early 2022. WeGo buses will continue to serve the high school throughout construction.
