Getting Around Town: Lyft and Uber Nashville

Lyft Nashville - Uber Nashville

When booking a trip to Nashville, Tennessee, a couple of things to take into consideration are where to stay and how you'll get around once you're here. If you're looking for the ultimate honky tonk hopping experience, the most obvious choice is to stay downtown within a close proximity to lower Broadway. However, many visitors also venture to the upscale neighborhood of The Gulch or the lively Midtown area of the city - both within a few miles of the downtown epicenter.

Regardless of where you end up staying, Nashville is made up of many unique neighborhoods of which you'll want to explore! 

The best way to get around is most definitely by using Lyft or Uber in Nashville. Both ride-share companies are especially useful if you're not interested in renting a car, if you're traveling in a group, or if you plan on elevating your fun with the consumption of adult beverages. Essentially, with the click of a button your own personal chauffeur will come pick you up and drop you off at the destination of your choice.

Your next question... how much will it cost?

Each fare consists of a base rate plus the cost per minute and mile. Below we've outlined some of the most popular neighborhoods in Nashville and estimates on the fares you might expect.
