Whether you are in Nashville for business, pleasure, or a combination of the two, getting around town is important: There’s so much to do here! Fortunately, there are several transportation options, including taxis, public transit, and car sharing.
Getting into downtown Nashville or the surrounding area is easy once your flight lands at Nashville International Airport (BNA). Here are your options for ground transportation:
Shuttle service: Many hotels and off-site parking services offer complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport. There are also shared ride shuttles that serve BNA, offering lower transportation costs than taxis. If you have booked a car share with Avail, we’ll take you and your baggage directly to our nearby lot, where your vehicle will be waiting.
Taxis and ride shares: Taxi companies and ride share providers (such as Uber and Lyft) also operate at BNA. Pickups are at the Ground Transportation Center, Level 1 of Terminal Garage 2. Uber customers should meet their rides at Zones B & C while Lyft passengers can meet their cars at Zone A.
Public transportation: WeGo Public Transit operates the #18 bus route to and from the airport. These buses run seven days a week, including holidays, and begin service in the early morning hours and operate late into the night. The bus stop is at the Ground Transportation Center, Level 1, Garage 2.
After you get into the city and are settled at your destination, you’ll want to start exploring. Nashville has a public bus system, and peer-to-peer car sharing is available through Avail.
Nashville’s WeGo Public Transit operates bus routes throughout the city. Single fares are $2.00, and day passes are $4.00. You can also purchase a seven-day pass for $20.
Of course, you may also need the comfort and convenience of your own car while in town. If that’s the case, Avail has clean, safe cars from Nashville locals available when you need them. Pick up your vehicle from the Avail lot located near Nashville International Airport (complimentary shuttle service is available). You’ll also be protected by Allstate Insurance and 24/7 roadside assistance. Visit us online to learn how you can borrow a car from Avail in Nashville.
