Employees Consider Let’s Move Nashville Plan

29 / March / 2018

The transit vote on May 1 is one of the biggest decisions that Nashville citizens will make, and it will impact everyone in the Middle Tennessee region. Senior leadership feel it was important for our employees to understand the implications of this plan whether you live in or outside of Davidson County.

The Nashville office recently gathered employees for an office-wide discussion on transit— how the company is involved and what employees can do. The pro-transit group Transit for Nashville and Erin Hafkenschiel, Director of the Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Sustainability, visited the office to present the Let’s Move Nashville plan.

According to Transit for Nashville, “Let’s Move Nashville will be completed in 2032 and by 2040 will provide bus, Rapid Bus, or LRT service within one half-mile of 76 percent of all Davidson County residents and 89 percent of all Davidson County jobs. AccessRide and Mobility on Demand services will expand this coverage to even more people and jobs throughout the county.”

Employees were also given an opportunity to register to vote, and if appropriate, update their voter registration. Barge Design Solutions believes it is important that employees are educated on the issues and exercise their right to vote.

Barge Design Solutions is part of a coalition of businesses and community groups that supports Let’s Move Nashville. Other organizations include Bass, Berry & Sims, Bridgestone Americas, HCA, and Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce.
