Important Points to Remember

  • All routes originate and transfer at the Rover Transit Center at the northeast corner of Walnut and Burton
  • Rover currently offers seven routes in the City of Murfreesboro (see map for route details)
  • Rover buses run Monday through Friday, from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.
  • Wait for the bus at the bus stop or anywhere along the route and flag down the driver as we make "courtesy stops"
  • Rover bus drivers try very hard to stay on schedule, so arrive at your stop a few minutes early
  • Check to be sure you are getting on the right bus before you board. Each bus shows its destination and route number above the front windshield

  • Every Rover bus is wheelchair-accessible
