Getting from town down Nashville to grand old opry

Morning from the uk we are in Nashville in May 2018 for the w/e & are hoping to visit the Grand Ols Opry & shopping mall . We keen to use public transportation rather than pay over the odds for a taxi ( don't use uber) , our hotel is in Union Street , would we be able to catch a bus around that area to our destination?

Any advice would be would greatly appreciated

Did email local bus company & am still awaiting a reply 😿

Google Maps has a "public transit" feature. Put in your start and end destination, then choose the icon at the top which looks like the front of a subway car. That will show you the available routes. The big downside to the bus is that it's slower than other options. Google Maps shows the trip at about 40min. That's assuming the bus is on time. It's cheap though. IIRC, it's $2.50 each way per person. A Taxi is a flat rate of $25 each way, plus $1 per additional person. Uber/Lyft is quite popular if you change your mind. It's usually cheaper than a taxi and around $15-20 each way but that can change with demand, especially just before and after the Grand Ole Opry show. A taxi or rideshare will take about 15-20 minutes each way.

Here's a Google Map for public transit from Union Street to Opry Mills Mall: https://goo.gl/maps/6nSEL4GAauR2

The bigger part of the issue is available MTA Bus service after the GOO show. The Opry is normally scheduled to run until 9:15 pm, but can (and often does) run late to about 9:30 pm. I'm not sure what time the last bus leaves Opry Mills, which the stop would be about a 5-7 minute walk from the Opry House after the time required to get out of the building.

Grayline does offer shuttle service from many of the downtown hotels to the Opry. Contact them to inquire about this service.
