Statement on Covid-19 Coronavirus
It is the Mule Town Trolley's top priority to ensure we are doing all we can to make the system as safe as possible for customers and employees. Based on recommendations from the CDC, we have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting of high touched areas on board vehicles.Bus Operators rely on members of the public to follow public health direction, do not travel when sick, to wash hands frequently and thoroughly, and to cover their coughs and sneezes. At this time, the Mule Town Trolley will continue to operate as regularly scheduled. For updates on any potential service closings as a result of Covid – 19, you can follow us @ Mule Town Trolley Transit Service (Facebook).

SCTDD is planning further enhancements to its Mule Town Trolley service by building new lighted bus shelters, providing identifiable locations where it is safe to board, and expanding again to offer a fifth route.
The South Central Tennessee Development District (SCTDD) provides public transportation in 13 counties in Tennessee, as well as intercity connections. The organization’s mission includes prioritization to seniors, low-income individuals, and persons with disabilities. SCTDD established their Mule Town Trolley Service in 2013. Why did they choose an old-fashioned trolley? First, because they already had some in their fleet, and second, because people seemed to really like old-fashioned trolleys. Also, there is so much history in this area of Tennessee that the agency wanted to commemorate. According to the official Mule Day website, “Mule Day” is an annual celebration that began in 1840 of all things related to mules. The day is held in April in Columbia, Tenn., the “Mule Capital” of the world. Mule Town isn’t actually a town but has become an iconic symbol of this rural neck of the woods. When Mule Town Trolley debuted in Maury County with a new deviated fixed route in 2013 with only two trolleys operating five days a week, people became excited and the service just started growing and growing.
In 2019, Mule Town Trolley has expanded to 12 vehicles and 62 bus stops, transporting over 3,000 commuters a month and more than 118,000 rides since it began operating. The service operates from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., and each of the four lines has routes that run every hour. Fares are $1 and transfers are free. The service connects to the commuter bus and provides access to many places the rural residents of Maury County need to go, including the local hospital, Health Department, Housing Authority, Department of Human Services, Career Center, Food Pantry, Community College, Social Security Center, Courthouse, shopping centers, and more. The service planners identified the “hot spots” that riders of SCTDD’s demand-response service frequently asked for to plan routes that connected people to where they most often requested to ride. Since the Mule Town Trolley is a deviated fixed-route service, however, people just need to stand at any of the designated stops and they will be automatically picked up.
Residents of Maury County have embraced the new service, tripling ridership numbers in six years. SCTDD is planning further enhancements to this service by building new lighted bus shelters, providing identifiable locations where it is safe to board, and expanding again to offer a fifth route.
“Mule Town Trolley helps the community. It helps economic growth. I’m proud to be part of a hard-working team that provides individuals from every walk of life personal mobility and freedom,” says Tammie Frazier, Mule Town Trolley's intercity services manager.

How to Ride the Bus
The Mule Town Trolley Transit Buses operate on what is called a deviated fixed-route system. This means that a bus/trolley is scheduled to arrive at a certain destination point along its route at a fixed time of day. Deviation up to of a mile off the main route may be requested 72 hours in advance. Plan to be at your stop several minutes before the bus's scheduled arrival time because schedule times may vary slightly due to inclement weather and traffic conditions. Patrons must wait at the designated bus stop area. Before getting on the bus, take a look at the display sign over the front windshield to confirm the bus route and final destination. If in doubt, just ask the driver.
