Taking the Bus

Knoxville Area Transit—KAT—operates a full fleet of buses. Many of their buses are equipped with bike racks. So it is possible to bike part of the way and bus the rest of the way.

  • KAT 30-day pass $50
  • Free trolleys between the University of Tennessee and downtown
  • UT Semester passes, Senior Freedom passes and more options to match your needs
  • 364 trips downtown every workday
  • 3 million riders per year

For info about routes, schedules and fares, please visit the KAT website.

LIFT is a KAT program that provides transportation for persons with disabilities. LIFT customers must be eligible under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and certified by KAT. For more information about LIFT, call 865-215-7850.
