In 1937, local transportation planner Adams Carroll discovered that our city had 25 streetcar lines for just 200,000 people:
I'm reading a 1937 Nashville transportation report; we had 200k people & 25 streetcar lines. These charts are sick! pic.twitter.com/E2UY3shOGa

Now, there are over 600,000 people in Nashville (excluding other counties in the metro area) and zero streetcar lines. By 2035, projections estimate that there will be over 7.5 thousand people in Davidson County, and nMotion’s plan is hoping to be opening up four streetcar or trolley lines around that time.
