Buses and trolleys ply the streets of Nashville, the Metropolitan Transit Authority running several bus routes from 5.30am to midnight each day. Bus 34 is the Music Valley Express 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 8.15am and 6.15pm. There is a free trolley route, the Lunch Line, looping through the central city area between Second Broadway and Sixth Avenue. For sightseers a trolley leaves the Frist Arts Center on Broadway at midday and 2pm for a two-hour tour that takes in the main 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.
