Nashville Mayor Megan Barry’s smart cities working group, Connected Nashville, unveiled its plan and opened a three-week public comment period on Oct. 12, and the mayor will release her transit plan to city leaders on Oct. 17.
Abhishek Dubey, an assistant professor of computer science, is available for media interviews as an expert on smart transit. He served as tech committee co-chair for Connected Nashville and works with Metropolitan Transit Authority and Information Technology Services on improving Nashville transportation.
“We really need the new transit system,” he says. “You’ve already seen what’s happening in Nashville. The congestion is so bad. We cannot create new roads … so what are we going to do? We need other modes of transit.”
