All aboard — WeGo Transit is seeking feedback to help shape the future of its commuter rail service.

Since 2006, WeGo Star has departed from Lebanon and downtown every weekday morning and afternoon, with stops along the way in Donelson, Hermitage, and Mt. Juliet. The train also carries passengers to home Titans games and large-scale events including New Year’s Eve and July 4th celebrations.

Now, you can help WeGo develop a long-term strategy for service and investments.

How to get involved

As strategic planning gets underway this summer, WeGo wants to hear from both passengers and non-riders via this survey (~5-7 minutes) and at public meetings. The feedback received will help the transit agency identify potential service changes and development at its seven stations.

Want to share your thoughts in-person? Find your preferred train stop below and make plans to attend at the designated meeting locations.
