Getting Around Nashville
The best way to get around Nashville is by car. The city has no effective public transportation system, and neighborhoods and attractions are too spread out to walk. To get from Nashville International Airport (BNA) to your hotel, we suggest taking a rental car since you'll need one anyway. But you can also take an airport shuttle, a public bus or a taxi.
|Car||A car is the only way to efficiently move to and from Nashville's spread-out sites. Most hotels offer complimentary parking and finding a spot downtown isn't too much of a hassle. Be sure to bring some spare change for the meters. You can find rental agencies at the airport and throughout the city.|
The city does offer a pubic bus system, but this isn't usually very useful to tourists since routes are catered to residents using the system to go to and from their workplaces. Fares cost about $2.
|Taxi||You can use metered taxis to get around, but we still recommend the convenience of your own vehicle. You can take a taxi from BNA Airport to the downtown zone for a flat rate of about $25.|
