Clarksville Transit System


The mission of the Clarksville Transit System is to plan, implement, maintain and manage a public transportation system that allows for maximum mobility for the community with an emphasis on safety, quality and efficiency.

All buses leave the Transit Center, located at 200 Legion Street, at approximately the same time and travel to the outer reaches of the city. The buses then return to the Transit Center at approximately the same time, enabling passengers to transfer from one route to another route to reach their final destination. Additionally, there are transfer points along each route for quicker transport.

By using the route maps, you can identify which route serves your needs.

Demand Response AREAS

If you need to travel into areas which are serviced by demand response buses, please call the information phone number one hour in advance or advise the bus operator you need this service. To find out if you live in a demand response area, please call 931-553-2470.

Please be patient between the hours of 2 to 7 p.m. as traffic congestion may cause bus delays.
