Mid-Cumberland Human Resource Agency Transit

Linking People with their Communities

Enhancing access to Tennessee’s non-urbanized areas and connecting thousands of people to jobs, schools and other destinations, the Mid-Cumberland Human Resource Agency (MCHRA) Public Transit serves as a vital function in meeting the mobility needs of thousands of people. As a mass public transportation service, it provides a basic level of rural mobility to those who depend on some form of public transportation.

MCHRA Public Transit provides rural mass public transportation service to 12 counties. MCHRA is proud to have a 80 percent accessible fleet. As an additional service to people with a greater economic need, organizations contract with MCHRA Public Transit to subsidize the cost of rides.

Background and History

Originally, MCHRA Public Transit was the Senior Citizens Transit System, serving people age 60 or older. Today, it is a full-fledged mass public transit system with a strong commitment to senior citizens and people with disabilities. MCHRA is proud to have a 80 percent accessible fleet.
