“CTS began this program more than twenty-five years ago and we are proud to have helped hundreds of people get home safely,” said Arthur Bing, Director of the Clarksville Transit System. “We’re happy to be able to offer the program again this year.”

Whether you are at a public or private party in Clarksville, we want to make sure you get home safely. Take this number with you to make sure you have a safe ride home and happy New Year celebration,” said Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan. “I want to thank CTS for making this service available again this year and I truly appreciate the CTS employees who are giving up their own celebrations to provide this service.”
