Clarksville, TN – Clarksville Transit System (CTS) will be offering several free services to help residents cope with the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.
On Tuesday, December 24th, 2019, CTS is offering free transportation from the Downtown Transit Center to the Annual Warm Souls Christmas Celebration at the Austin Peay State University (APSU) Morgan University Center.
Warm Souls will be from 10:00am to 1:00pm, with doors opening at 9:30am.
CTS trips to Warm Souls will be from 9:30am-11:30am, and return trips will begin at 12:20pm.
“This is a wonderful event organized every year by Radical Mission, and the Clarksville Transit System wants to ensure that no one is unable to participate due to a lack of transportation,” said Paul Nelson, CTS director.
Radical Mission Compassionate Ministries partners with local churches, organizations, businesses and volunteers for Warm Souls, which reaches out to the community with a hot homemade meal, gently used clothing and toys, prayer and a friendly hand.
Free Rides Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve
CTS also will offer free rides to all passengers on December 24th to help with last-minute holiday shopping trips. Because of holiday hours, the transit center will close early on Tuesday, with all buses leaving the center at 4:00pm, with buses returning to the garage at 5:00pm.
To fight impaired driving, Clarksville Transit System buses will provide free safe rides home for anyone who may have celebrated too much. Operation Safe Ride will be offered from 11:00pm to 3:00am New Year’s Eve Tuesday, December 31st.
Make arrangements for transportation from public or private locations within the City Limits by calling 931.553.2429.
Passengers needing service to Fort Campbell will be dropped off at Gate 4 and transported on post by installation officials.
