If those riding the train in for the festivities wish to enjoy other events in the downtown area before the official celebration at Bicentennial Mall, note that Bicentennial is an approximately 25-minute walk from Riverfront Station, or a free WeGo bus providing dedicated service to Bicentennial Mall can be caught approximately every 10 minutes at a designated stop on Commerce Street between 5th and 6th Avenues.

For the Music City Star's return trip, buses will load on James Robertson between 6th and 7th Avenues and will proceed directly to Riverfront Station between midnight and 1 a.m. WeGo staff will be on hand to assist and direct passengers. The Music City Star will depart at 1:30 a.m.

Customers will receive only one round-trip ticket for the New Year's Eve train and must show the ticket to train personnel for boarding. Upon boarding, customers will receive a wristband in place of the ticket. This will serve as your train and shuttle bus ticket. You must show the wristband to the shuttle bus operator and the conductor for the return trip. Customers also must present their wristband to security personnel to enter the checkpoint area at Riverfront Station. Weekday Music City Star tickets and passes are not accepted on the New Year's Eve train.
