Free rides on Music City Star, RTA buses

For the third year, the Regional Transportation Authority of Middle Tennessee (RTA) is offering free rides on the Music City Star and on all RTA buses the Friday after Thanksgiving, also known as "Black Friday."

"If you are looking for family entertainment options the day after Thanksgiving, why not take a free ride on the Music City Star? It's a great way for new customers to check out our train and for transit veterans to introduce a family member or friend to public transit," RTA Director of Communications and Marketing Patricia Harris-Morehead said.

Nashville MTA's free Music City Blue Circuit buses meet train customers on the morning trips. The Circuit is the most convenient way to get around downtown Nashville and connects many key downtown destinations, including the Nashville Farmers Market, numerous points in between and the Music City Central transit station where people can make connections to 46 other MTA bus routes.

The RTA express buses will also offer free service from the outlying counties.

The RTA will operate on its regular schedule on Black Friday. Service will begin early Friday morning on Nov. 27 and will end when the regional train completes its final run late Friday night. The free rides, which are unlimited, are available all day.
