The route of the proposed bus rapid transit system Amp is changing yet again.
You may remember the amp is proposed to run from East Nashville through downtown and west end to White Bridge Road. The previous route was going to avoid lower Broadway by going north and south on 5th Avenue.
The Metro Transit Authority now wants to use parts of 8th Avenue, Commerce Street and a smaller section of 5th Avenue instead.
MTA says the change is needed for design reasons.
