Hermitage, TN - According to reports, Nashville's commuter train, the Music City Star, hit record ridership on Wednesday after announcing an added stop near the new Hermitage Whataburger location.
Documents show that the train, which usually averages about 1,200-1,300 passengers per day, sold over 20,000 tickets for Wednesday morning ahead of Whataburger's 11:00 a.m. opening.
"Most of the tickets sold are for the 10:40 a.m. departure, but we hit records for every departure throughout the day for the next six months," said representative Lynette Fleetman. "We are sold out."
Officials strongly encourage passengers to get to the station two hours early for the best chance to get a seat inside the train.
