The Nashville Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) is a public transit system that serves Nashville-Davidson County, Tennessee. It is the only bus system in the nation that utilizes credit card fare stations on board the vehicles for the entire fleet. The system was re-branded as WeGo Public Transit in July 2018.[1][2]

Metro-Nashville government purchased the Nashville Transit Company and created the Metropolitan Transit Authority in 1973.[3]
