NASHVILLE – Fewer than 200 tickets remain for the Regional Transportation Authority of Middle Tennessee’s July 4 Music City Star train to the celebration at Nashville’s Riverfront Park. Recently, 950 tickets went on sale to the general public.
Round-trip tickets cost $12 plus a $1 processing fee and are available for purchase through the Music City Star website at musiccitystar.org or at ticketsnashville.com with a credit card. Tickets will be on sale until 24 hours prior to departure or until they are sold out, whichever comes first. Tickets will not be for sale July 4 on the platforms. Parking is free at all of the outlying stations.
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.
Customers will receive only one ticket for the round-trip and will need to show the ticket to train personnel for scanning when boarding on both trips. Children 4 and younger will not need a ticket to board; however, they will be required to sit in their parent’s lap. Children 5 and older will need a ticket. After the fireworks, passengers should be seated in the same train car for easier exiting at their designated station. Weekday Music City Star tickets and passes are not accepted on the July 4 train.
Following de-boarding at Riverfront Station, the train will move out of the station so its locomotives will not interfere with performances on the Riverfront stage. Passengers will not be able to return to the train during the July 4 festivities. To get some relief from the heat, misting stations and water fountains will be available.
Backpacks and folding chairs will be allowed onboard. Any items that will not fit underneath the seat, such as large coolers, bikes and wagons, are not permitted on the train. Anyone needing special accommodations to board should call 615-862-5925 prior to their trip.
