Welcome to Our Visitors with Disabilities
If you have a disability, travel can be a real challenge. I wish Nashville made it easier for you. I haven’t found a round-up of resources so I created one. Click the links that match your specific special needs. Note: some of these organizations are primarily focused on serving area residents but may be able to provide helpful information.
Access Music City. Want to know about access to local attractions and restaurants around town? The staff and volunteers of Empower TN served as your advance team They even rate popular destinations by neighborhood.
Tennessee Disability Pathfinder. Operated through Vanderbilt University, it’s another all-inclusive hub worth investigating.
Wheelmap Nashville. This link takes you to a map marking dozens of places around town. Unfortunately it relies on crowd-sourcing for accessibility information and they haven’t logged much feedback yet.
Nashville Visitors Centers. Operated by the Nashville Tourist and Visitors Corporation, they’re a wealth of knowledge about all things Nashville.
ADA-compliant transportation. Even if you’re not a Nashville resident, you may qualify to take advantage of rides with accessible vehicles operated by MTA (Metro Transit Authority). Click the link to see the guidelines.
