Nashville, (AP) - The Music City Star has completed its inaugural run, pulling into a new Downtown Nashville train station on time at 6:40 a.m.
The train began its route in Lebanon, 32 miles east of the city, making a half-dozen stops on its way Downtown.
Transportation officials hope commuters will be lured by the $5 one-way tickets.
There are parking lots at the suburban stations, so commuters can leave their cars and ride the train into down, arriving at the station on the Cumberland River at the foot of Broadway.
Officials will be watching to see how well the train catches on. It could become the first in a series of commuter trains feeding into Nashville from different directions.
