Buses and trolleys ply the streets of Nashville, with the Metropolitan Transit Authority running several dozen bus routes from 5:30am to midnight each day. Bus 34 is the Opry Mills Route that links the downtown district with Opryland, where it meets the Music Valley Trolley serving Music Drive. This service operates every 40 minutes daily between 9am and 6pm. There is a free trolley route, the Lunch Line, looping through the central city area between Second Broadway and Sixth Avenue. For sightseers, the free Music City Circuit bus leaves the Riverfront Station every 15 to 40 minutes from 6:30am to 11pm on weekdays, from 11am to 11pm on Saturdays, stopping at many popular downtown attractions. There are several taxi companies operating in Nashville, and the major car rental companies offer services. Driving in Nashville's small downtown area can be frustrating, but a hire car is useful for excursions out of town. Visitors staying downtown will find that most attractions are within easy walking distance.
