NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessean reported that a survey of 500 registered voters shows a majority of Nashville residents support the Amp, Nashville Mayor Karl Dean’s bus rapid transit (BRT) project. Seventy-seven percent of respondents support the project, compared with 13% who oppose it.

The survey was conducted in February by the Global Strategy Group, a national public affairs firm. It was funded with a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation, which is trying to increase support for BRT in Nashville and three other cities. For the full story, click here.
