NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The head of the Metropolitan Transit Authority said public transportation in Nashville is safe.
MTA wants to remind people about their security plans after a robbery near their bus station last week.
MTA said the Music City Central station on 5th Avenue and Charlotte Avenue is one of the safest facilities in downtown Nashville. They have lots of security cameras, as well as Metro police officers on duty around the clock.
"When you come to Music City Central, you're going to be safe and secure, and that there are police officers and security officers that are going to take care of you," MTA/RTA CEO Paul Ballard.
MTA also has a Code of Conduct policy that gives transit personnel the authority to suspend individuals from the facility for certain offenses.
These safety features have been in place since the downtown transit center opened in 2008.
