NASHVILLE, Tenn. – MTA and RTA will resume bus services on Thursday and will operate on a Sunday/Holiday schedule. All fares will be free on all MTA buses. 

The routes and frequencies will increase as flooding conditions improve. 

All services had been canceled for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday because of the record flooding in Nashville. 

The Nashville MTA facilities on Nestor Street were affected by the flooding. They are located on the banks of the Cumberland River. 

A fleet of MTA buses had been relocated from a garage on Nestor Street to a bus lot operated by Metro Nashville Public Schools near the fairgrounds. 

AccessRide customers may begin rescheduling reservations for medical trips, and the fare will also be free. The service will be provided for only emergency trips.

Most of the RTA's regional bus services from outlying areas will resume on Thursday and fares will be collected. The routes include service from Franklin, Brentwood, Thompson's Station, Spring Hill, Gallatin and Hendersonville.   

The Music City Star will not resume service on Thursday because of the flooding from the Cumberland River at Riverfront Station.
