Who We Are
Passengers & RoutesOur team carries around 3 million passengers each year. Our 23 fixed routes and three trolley lines reach over 80% of the City of Knoxville's entire population within half a mile.
We are happy to welcome everyone aboard our system, regardless of age, color, national origin, citizenship status, physical or mental disability, race, religion, creed, gender or sexual orientation.
Funding & UnionOur funding comes from the City of Knoxville, the State of Tennessee, the federal government, and fare revenues.
Many of our operators and service personnel are members of the Amalgamated Transit Union local Number 1164.
In addition to this, we are committed to being an equal and diverse place to work. If you'd like to know more about this, please visit our transparency and accountability section.
