NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — WeGo Public Transit is stepping up its game with six new over-the-road coaches.

You may start seeing the new fleet as soon as Wednesday.

Each new bus will have USB ports for phone charging and more plush, comfortable seating.

There are plans to get the fleet to ten buses after the summertime, when road testing and inspections are done.

These coaches are designed for long periods of travel and should serve riders better if they don't have to worry about charging their smart devices. With more comfortable seats, they will make those long rides much smoother.

The buses are expected to replace a third of the ones used by Grayline.

WeGo's CEO said there are other projects in the works for public transit like bringing back four locomotives, replacing passenger cars on the Music City Star, and an account-based fare collection system.
