Public Transit Tips (8)

The wheels on the bus go round & round.....

The Nashville bus system covers most areas you'll want to see within the city, runs on time, and is relatively safe & clean. The drivers were a big help in figuring out how to get around & where to get off the bus. If you're on a budget, this is a great way to save $ on a few days of rental car fees. A bus pass for one week of unlimited rides was $15 per person in September 2003.

Nashville's Mayor Dean just announced in April 2010 the arrival of a new FREE bus system in Downtown Nashville. It is up and running now & will be great for tourists wanting to see the sights , but not wanting to walk the hills. It covers the following areas: The Gulch, Downtown Riverfront Park, the TN State Capital, and the Farmer's Market. The busses are lime green & run about every 1/2 hour from 6am to 11pm. Please contact the Nashville MTA for more information about routes and schedule times: http://www.nashvillemta.org

For car sharing options and another alternative to renting a car for your stay in Nashville contact: http://www.parkitdowntown.com/getting_around/WeCar/

A word of caution... don't use the bus to sightsee through Nashville neighborhoods. There are some places tourists just DO NOT belong. DO NOT TAKE the #22 bus that goes beyond the Farmers Market to the County Hospital. We made that mistake & soon learned that only residents of those neighborhoods should be on that bus - all ended well, but it wasn't the most comfortable feeling.

Don't wait to flag down a taxi

Don't expect to be able to flag down a taxi once you get into downtown Nashville. All taxis are call ahead and arranged. You'll definitely be flagged as a "touron" (local for tourist ***) if you try to do this! Ask your service desk at your hotel if this is your favorite mode of transport. Honestly, best to ride the trolley, walk or even rent a car than rely on our awful taxi services.

Nashville is very easy to get...

Nashville is very easy to get to, by air or by auto. The Nashville International Airport (BNA) is a major hub, and is modern, clean, and beautiful! It doesn't take long at all, to get through there! And major freeways connect into Nashville!

Nashville is a very user...

Nashville is a very user friendly city, very accomodating to tourists! There are sighseeing tours, that will pick you up right at your hotel! A trolley which takes you around 'The District' in the downtown area. Shuttle buses from the airport to hotels. And shuttle buses from hotels to the Opryland complex. Also, river taxis that take you from the Opryland complex via the Cumberland River, to downtown! Heck, you don't even really need your car!

the bus system

the bus system in nashville and davidson county is extensive. to figure out which buses to take for a particular destination, go to this extremely helpful "trip planner" website -- http://www.nashvillemta.org/Nashville-MTA-Trip-Planner.asp. this website gives you the bus route number, for which you can find detailed maps and schedules at http://www.nashvillemta.org/Nashville-MTA-Maps-and-Schedules.asp. the "trip planner" website also shows if you will need some other form of transportation somewhere along the way, in which case see my other nashville transportation tips.

not all of the bus routes operate on weekends; once you know the number of the bus route you need, check the weekday/weekend schedule at http://www.nashvillemta.org/Nashville-MTA-Maps-and-Schedules.asp.

"park-and-ride" locations, available on weekdays, are listed at http://www.nashvillemta.org/Nashville-MTA-Park&Ride.asp.

buses are wheelchair-accessible and have bike racks as well.

fares are paid in cash; the fare box accepts bills up to $20 and all american coins. the driver does not give change, but the fare box issues change in the form of a card.

the website for the bus system in general is at http://www.nashvillemta.org/Nashville-MTA-homepage.asp.
