      How to travel around Knoxville

      You can easily walk around Downtown Knoxville, or ride the free trolley, but many of the area’s attractions are further out, so visitors commonly travel by car. Parking is easy in the city and traffic relatively light other than during rush hour periods; so don’t worry about bringing your rental car downtown. Here are some details about Knoxville TN transportation.

      Public Transportation

      The local bus system, KAT, serves the city and county, but buses run infrequently, making this a poor option. If you choose to ride the buses, the fare is $1.50 USD per ride or you can buy a day pass for $4.00 USD. You’ll find that the free Knoxville trolleys run more frequently, every 7-15 minutes along the three downtown routes.

      Taxis

      For quick trips, or if you prefer not to drive yourself, you can call for or hail a taxi. The regular rates are $2.00 USD to start, followed by $2.00 USD per mile, with a $12.00 USD waiting charge. Uber or Lyft services are also available, and likely a bit cheaper.
