My ride to school


GettinG to

school

the nashville MtA bus system is a

great way to get to and from school.

Most routes can even accommodate

afterschool activities, so getting a

ride home after practice is no longer

a problem. And, MtA makes riding

the bus safe and comfortable. our

friendly drivers are happy to help by

answering whatever questions you

may have.

To plan your trip

you will need:

Bus schedules

for the routes that

serve your home and

your school

A Quest Youth

Pass or bus fare

($1.05)

The time you

need to arrive or

leave school

Youth FAres

Youth fares (for riders ages 19 and

under) are $1.05. tell the driver you

need the youth fare and pay with the

exact change when you get on the

bus or use an All-Day, 7-Day or

31-Day Quest Youth Pass. if you plan

to transfer to another bus, you will

need to pay another youth fare of

$1.05 or swipe your multi-ride pass.

Use $1 coins or multi-ride

passes to pay the fare.

hoW to PlAn

Your triP to school

the best way to plan your route is to

work backward from the time you need to get to

school — that way, you’ll never be late!

• use the school listings on pages

7-11 to determine the route that

serves your school. using the bus

schedule for your school route,

find the timepoints for “Weekdays

from Downtown.” on the route

schedule, find the stop closest to

your school and follow the column

down to the time you need to

arrive at school. Write the route

and arrival time under “MY

school” on the inside covers.

• From your arrival time on the route

schedule, move to the far left to

find the time the bus leaves

downtown’s Music city central

(Mcc) in order to get to your

stop. Write this departure time

under “MY connection” on the

inside covers.

• use the “Area Bus routes” list on

page 6 to determine the routes

that serve your area of town. using

the map on the bus schedule for

each route, find the most convenient

stop for you. Write the route

number under “MY hoMe” on the

inside covers.

• using the bus schedule for your

home route, find the timepoints

for “Weekdays to Downtown.” on

the route schedule, look at the far

right column and find the departure

time for your connection to school.

Move up the column to a time that

will get you downtown in plenty of

time to make your connection.

note this arrival time under “MY

connection” on the inside covers.

• From your connection arrival time,

follow the row to the far left to

find the time the bus leaves your

home bus stop. Write this departure

time under “MY hoMe” on the

inside covers.

Work backward to get

home from school. Be

sure you are looking

at the schedule for the

buses heading in the

right direction! Make

your notes for your

return ride on the

back inside cover.

the right way to go


hoW to reAD a scheDule

MtA and rtA offer 46 bus routes

serving the Middle tennessee area.

routes are designated by a route

number and destination. Maps and

schedules for each route are available

at MtA displays around town, online

at nashvillemta.org or by calling

customer care at (615) 862-5950.

All bus schedules have a map of

the route and a list of timepoints

the bus runs along the route.

timepoints are organized by day

(times are different for weekdays,

saturdays, and sundays/holidays)

and direction of travel (to downtown/

from downtown). timepoints are

read in columns and rows. to find

the estimated times a bus stops

at a particular spot, read down

the column for the location. to

determine the times that a particular

bus will stop at other stops, read

across the row (left to right). this

is how you determine the time you

need to get on a bus to get to where

you are going on time.

FinDinG

Your Bus and

Bus stoP

Blue-and-white MtA bus stop signs,

bus shelters or benches identify

bus stops. You must be at the bus

stop on time so you won’t miss the

bus. the bus schedule will let you

know what time to expect the bus.

(running a little late? check your bus

schedule—another bus will

probably be along soon.)

look for the route name and

number on the bus front and side

displays. Make sure you are

getting on the right bus! if you have

any questions about where the bus

is going, ask the driver.

Stand away

from the road

to avoid

traffic.

GettinG

on the

Bus

enter the bus

through the door

nearest the driver. Please

wait for others to leave before

entering the bus. Please remain

behind the standing line while riding

the bus.

Find a seat promptly and place your

book bag and other belongings

on your lap instead of taking an

extra seat. Please avoid sitting on

the floor, steps, etc. and follow the

direction of the driver. his or her job

is to make sure you arrive safely!

Please behave in a safe, courteous

manner at all times. no loud noises,

horseplay or inappropriate behavior

is permitted and please place trash

in specified containers.

Be respectful of other riders.

Stay in well-lit areas.

Wait until the bus comes

to a complete stop before

lining up to climb aboard.

No need to crowd to get

on the bus first...

I need my space, man.

there’s plenty of

room for everyone!

the right way to go


exitinG the

Bus

it is important that you remain

alert while riding the bus. it is your

responsibility to get off the bus at

your stop. if you are not sure where

to get off, ask the driver as you get

on the bus.

if you know the stop you want, signal

the driver about one block before the

stop by either pulling the stop cord

or pushing the strip located next to

the window.

When exiting the bus, please use

the exit doors toward the middle of

the bus. Please remain at the top

step until the green light comes on

indicating it is safe to exit.

trAnsFerrinG

FroM one Bus

to Another

if you plan to transfer to another bus,

you will need to pay another youth

fare when you board that bus. if you

are using a multi-ride pass, just

swipe your pass at the fare box.

transfers to and from regional routes

(outside Davidson county) are different

and may require an additional fee.

Please call (615) 862-5950 for more

information.

Most of the buses travel to the main

transfer station Music city central

(Mcc), which is located at 400

charlotte Avenue.

Bike and riDe

Never cross the street in front

of a bus. Wait until the

bus has pulled off so you can

safely cross the road.

For your convenience, all MtA buses

are equipped with bike racks. in just

a few seconds, you can securely

store your bike and ride in comfort.

simply squeeze the metal handle in

the center of the rack and pull down.

Place your front wheel in the tray,

rotate the knobbed handle around to
