Nashville's Music City Star commuter-rail line to debut in mid-September

On Sept. 18, the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) will launch service on the Music City Star, a 32-mile commuter-rail corridor linking Nashville and Lebanon, Tenn.

Trains will operate along existing Nashville and Eastern Railroad Authority tracks. RTA spent about $40 million to install continuous-welded rail, replace ties, ugrade crossings, align track and install a new signal system.

The five-station line is expected to average 1,300 passengers daily.
