Free Commutes to/from Campus on the Bus or Train
Since 2005, Belmont has offered free transportation to campus for students, faculty and staff thanks to a partnership with Nashville’s Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA).
MTA BUS: Any student or employee with a Belmont-issued ID card can ride to and from the campus without charge simply by swiping a Belmont ID through the magnetic strip reader on the top right corner of the bus’s fare box when boarding. The university is then billed for the bus trips. Schedules and information are available at http://www.nashvillemta.org/.
COMMUTER BUS: Belmont offers free commuter bus transportation on the Relax & Ride system, operating from Rutherford County, Sumner County, Dickson, Springfield/Joelton, Franklin/Brentwood, Clarksville, and Spring Hill. Relax & Ride tickets can be acquired at Belmont Central. Schedules and information are available at http://www.musiccitystar.org/Middle-TN-RTA-homepage.asp.
TRAIN: Belmont offers free train transportation on the Music City Star rail system, operating from Lebanon, Martha, Mt. Juliet, Hermitage, and Donelson to downtown Nashville's Riverfront Park. Train tickets can be acquired at Belmont Central. Schedules and information are available at http://www.musiccitystar.org/Middle-TN-RTA-homepage.asp.
These services are intended to improve the environment and relieve traffic congestion on campus, but please use these free privileges for commuting to and from campus only.
