Nashville TN - Now offering Free Bus Routes Downtown!

Nashville TN - Now offering Free Bus Routes Downtown!Free Downtown Nashville Bus

The Metro Transit Authority, MTA, recently announce the beginning of 2 new FREE routes in the Downtown area. The purpose of this is to serve those who work downtown Nashville, Tourists visiting Downtown Nashville, Students and Residents of Downtown Nashville.

The buses will not be the same as the regular MTA blue and white buses. These will have a special wrap that says that they are part of the Music City Circuit. Both routes will include stops at the Music City Central Station connecting to all MTA buses.

The Red route will travel from Bi-Centennial Mall to down around the Schermerhorn and Country Music Hall of Fame passing by Riverfront Station and several of the downtown hotels. The Blue route is referred to as the Gulch Route will pass by Hume Fogg High School as it heads east past hotels to the Riverfront Station. It will also go around the Country Music Hall of Fame and Schermerhorn to loop back to the Gulch.

Nashville TN is truly making itself a very user friendly city. Imagine being able to park at the Farmers Market, or stay at one of the many Downtown Nashville hotels and being able to ride the bus free to the many popular attractions downtown including the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, the The Country Music Hall of Fame or take in a concert at the Sommet Center.

Service will be available from 6:30 am Monday through Friday on both routes, ending at midnight to the Gulch and 6pm to the Farmers Market. Saturdays 11am to midnight on the Blue/Gulch route and 11am to 6pm on Saturdays.

Mary - there are so many great things to do downtown, but it's not always convenient. I think this will help downtown worker get to go to many more restaurants because they'll have a ride!

Vanessa - I agree. Make it easy for people to enjoy downtown!

After many years here in the Portland area, we just dropped that program. The reason they dropped it is because the homeless were using the bus as a warm shelter and were never getting off.

Todd - I hope it doesn't come down to that. The city is doing a lot of work with the homeless and it would be a shame for one to affect the other. I can see where it would happen.
