Ground Transportation to/from Airport

The National Guard Association of Tennessee will provide free ground transportation from Nashville International Airport to Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center on Sept. 9 and 10 and back to the airport Sept. 14.

To get a seat on a shuttle bus at the airport, go to the Gaylord Opryland kiosk on the ground floor. NGATN will have personnel in navy-blue polo shirts throughout the terminal to direct you.

Gaylord Opryland’s airport shuttle may be the best bet for those traveling on other days. The cost is $30 one way or $40 round trip. Those 65 and older receive a discounted rate of $18 one way or $28 roundtrip. Check in at the Gaylord Opryland kiosk at the airport or the hotel’s front desk. Taxis run about $25 each way for the 8.3-mile trip.


For those driving, and half of the nation’s population lives within a one-day’s drive of Music City, NGATN has negotiated discounted parking at Gaylord Opryland. The rate will be $12 a day for self-parking and $20 for valet parking. Normal rates are $25 and $30, respectively.
