Using Mass Transit in Nashville

When getting around Nashville, college students don’t always have the luxury of driving. Cars are expensive, their gas tanks need constant attention, they tend to break down and after insurance, taxes and licensing, it can leave you wondering if cars are worth it?

If a car is not in your plans for college, you still have an easy opportunity to make it to class and traverse around Nashville, all on one bus line, the 36x to Madison. The 36x shuttles you from Nossi College of Art to downtown with a quick ride on Ellington Parkway. Once downtown, you can make it anywhere in the city thanks to Nashville’s MTA bus system and our brand new Music City Central station located between 4th and 5th avenue. Monthly passes are available and until you turn 20, there are discounted ticket options!

Music City uses hybrid buses for the Music City Circuit, a FREE bus system that transports people throughout the downtown core and to the Gulch, a trendy neighborhood located in the downtown area. Without leaving downtown, you can take the Blue Line to see a play, visit a dozen music venues, play laser tag, reach the greenway, walk the riverfront, cheer on the Titans and the Predators or eat at a number of local restaurants. If you want to get to the Gulch, take the Green Line and visit The Frist Museum, rent a library book, stop by two local breweries, shop, pamper yourself, drink local coffee or watch the famous Doyle and Debbie Show at The Station Inn.

In addition to mass transit, Downtown Nashville also offers the We Car, a car sharing program that is a modern alternative to car ownership. We Cars have designated parking spaces, so parking is a non-issue. You can rent one for an hour or for a day. It is convenient and allows Nashville to reduce its carbon footprint.

Nossi’s new campus sits at a perfect location to make it easier for you to get to class, to get around Nashville and enjoy everything this city has to offer.
