Mayor Megan Barry rode the bus to work Wednesday to promote a new Metro bus app aimed at easing Nashvillians’ commute.

The app, Music City Transit Tracker, utilizes real-time tracking data to let you know where your bus is, when it will arrive and even about detours on your route.

Mayor Barry rode the bus to demonstrate the app's convenience. Metro Transit officials said the app should help ease congestion on the Nashville's roadways and make it easier for frequent bus riders.

Other third parties have decided to use the data to make commuting and trip planning in Nashville easier.
