The Regional Transportation Authority of Middle Tennessee (RTA) will once again operate its special Music City Star train on July 4, 2012. All 900 tickets sold out on June 22, 2012.
The train is scheduled to depart from the Lebanon Station at 4 p.m., stop in Martha at 4:13 p.m., Mt. Juliet at 4:24 p.m., Hermitage at 4:33 p.m., Donelson at 4:44 p.m. and arrive at Nashville's Riverfront Station at 5 p.m. The return train to Lebanon leaves 30 minutes after the conclusion of the Nashville fireworks.
Parking is free at all of the outlying stations.
Customers will receive only one ticket for the round-trip and will need to show the ticket to the conductor when boarding on both trips. Children age 4 and under will not need a ticket to board; however, they will be required to sit in their parent's lap. Weekday Music City Star tickets and passes are not accepted on the July 4th train.
In order to ensure that passengers traveling together will be seated in the same passenger car, tickets will have a car number assignment printed on them. Passengers should enter that specific car at their boarding stations. Travel back to the original boarding stations from Riverfront Station after the fireworks should be in that same passenger car.
Any items that will not fit underneath the seat, such as large coolers, bikes and wagons, are not permitted on the train. Backpacks and folding chairs will be allowed onboard.
