Nashville City Civitan Club Holds Sept. 21 Meeting



The Nashville City Civitan Club held its second bimonthly monthly September meeting on Wednesday, September 21, 2011, at Swett’s Restaurant in West Nashville. Some 35 members and guests were present to discuss the civic group’s ongoing work in the Nashville Community and through Civitan International. The meeting began with the complete Pledge of Allegiance, the singing of the National Anthem, and a prayer.
Speaker Guy Morgan

The September 21 speaker was Guy Morgan, Assistant Director of Transportation for Metro Schools as well as a former president of the Nashville Civitan Club.
Morgan explained the secret mysteries behind bus routes and snow closures, as well as sharing many facts about Metro buses.
* School Bus Secrets *
A new bus costs $95,000
Metro school buses run on a 15 year cycle
The Metro school bus fleet travels 6.7 million miles each year
There is a traffic incident every day
90% of traffic accidents involve other drivers hitting a school bus
Since 1964 there has only been 1 school bus fatality in the state of Tennessee
During the Nashville flood of 2010, the police, emergency vehicles and MTA used the Metro school bus fueling center
Interestingly, the Transportation Department for Metro Schools was not exempt from FEMA slow-pay issues. Much like many other Nashvillians, Metro is still waiting for payment for lost buses while they try to jump through FEMA’s hoops finding replacement buses similar to the ones which were lost, which means finding older model buses of similar makes and models in good running order.
The local Civitan group meets again on Wednesday, October 5, and is planning an outing to Gerst Haus on October 6. Email Christian Activities for more information or visit
