People gathered on Tuesday evening for a community meeting to discuss the new "AMP" rapid bus system that would connect the West End to Five Points across Nashville.
Supporters say the AMP will connect the city like never before, but opponents are worried about traffic congestion and the service the bus line will provide.
"With only four stations, stops between I-440 and 40, it's not convenient to any of the hospitals. It's not convenient to the major destinations in the area. Local bus service, at the curb, with many more stops, provides a higher quality bus service in an area with dense destinations," said Malcolm Getz, who opposes the AMP.
If approved, the project is estimated to cost $175 million. The city would have to front about $65 million towards the project.
The rest would be paid for through federal grants.
