Light Rail Transit: A Game-Changing Vision for Knoxville

  • Total Wine & More Knoxville 11370 Parkside Dr #2400 Knoxville, (map)

Join former Knoxville City Councilman and current CEO of the Transit Alliance of East Tennessee, Joe Hultquist,  as he shares a vision that just might become a game-changing reality. Imagine a light rail transit line connecting downtown Knoxville and the UT campus to Alcoa, Maryville and McGee Tyson Airport. And, imagine a series of high quality, mixed use, urban scale developments along that route at stations.

You might be thinking, "How could this possibly happen, when Knoxville's too small to play in the big leagues of metros with light rail systems? Those places have the population and demand to grab the federal and state funding that's always been assumed a necessity for underwriting such a grand scheme. Is there an alternative approach that might work?" The answer is: Yes, in fact there is!  And if it's successful, it will change us (for the better) as a city and metro region. Come and hear the plan!

There will be a wine tasting and refreshments available! Space is limited, so RSVP now!
