Of all the areas around Nashville, the commute back up the NW I-24 corridor is by far the easiest. There are other areas that need this far worse than our area. Besides, only people who work in the downtown area are likely to utilize it. If you don't work within walking distance of the train station, you still have to get a cab or a city bus. That just adds more cost and time to the commute.

The over-all cost would depend on the type of vehicle being driven, distance, speed and exact route. However I do believe that it would help considerably on vehicle maintenance, time management and some areas of economic imbalance where employment is concerned.
Although there are other areas that could use the same service I don't see where it would hurt anything to attempt to get fewer people driving their vehicles to save on fuel, oil and rubber consumption.
