All options have been placed back on the table according to Metro Council Member Robert Swope speaking about the city's future plans for transit.

That's why Swope once again advocated for his own "intelligent transit" plan, which he first introduced about two months ago.

It's an idea that would create double-stacked highways, electric buses, and self-driving cars with their own dedicated lane.

Swope's plan would cost $1.6 billion, and he said it could become a reality very quickly.

Tennessee law requires the city to wait one year before putting another referendum on the ballot, but if no tax increase is required, a vote could happen sooner.
