The T from a front angle


The University of Tennessee’s transit system, “The T,” provides our students, staff, faculty, and visitors a safe, convenient, and efficient campus-wide transportation service. Service is fare-free for all passengers.

Each new bus incorporates a clean design and interactive technology. Features include:

  • Real-time GPS tracking to monitor current location and arrival time
  • The UT mobile app integrates the T’s GPS tracking map, route stop information, and news updates on route and service changes
  • All T vehicles are accessible to passengers with disabilities
  • Front-of-vehicle bicycle racks
  • Four USB charging stations are located at the back of each vehicle
  • Currently, all T vehicles run on diesel – we are excited to announce that we are transitioning to electric vehicles and anticipate the first delivery in the Summer of 2024.
  • Similar to the UT Housing policy, for health reasons, pets are not allowed on the buses. The only exception is service animals.

UT selected Transdev to operate the T, which began service on June 1, 2013, and the contract was renewed in 2023. Transdev operates more than twenty campus transit systems and has more than fifty years of private transit experience.
