The Chattanooga Area Regional Transportation Authority, better known as CARTA, provides two free electric shuttle lines that operate across the downtown area:
+
The Chattanooga Area Regional Transportation Authority, better known as CARTA, provides one of the easiest way to move around downtown Chattanooga via a free electric shuttle that operates between the Holiday Inn Choo-Choo and Tennessee Aquarium, along with new service to Chattanooga's North Shore shops and Coolidge Park.
 
+
 
+
There are also buses servicing the remainder of the city for a fare. As of January 2012, the fares are:
*Downtown
 
Between the Tennessee Aquarium and Chattanooga Choo-Choo Hotel; Mon - Fri every 5 min, 6:30 am - 11:00 pm; Sat every 5 min, 9:30 am - 11:00 pm; Sun every 5 min, 9:30 am - 8:30 pm
 
 
 
*Northshore
 
Between the Tennessee Aquarium and Shuttle Park Northshore; Mon - Sat every 30 min, 10:00 am - 5:30 pm; Sun not in service
 
 
 
The Electic Shuttle's system map can be found at [http://gocarta.org/maps/shuttlemap.pdf]
 
 
 
 
 
A well-maintained fleet of busses service the remainder of the city. If you're lucky, you might catch one of CARTA's sleek, quiet, and fuel-efficient Hybrid trams. Some of the main lines include:
 
 
 
*Route 4: Eastgate/Hamilton Place
 
Servicing the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Olde Town Brainerd, and Hamilton Place Mall
 
 
 
*Route 15: St. Elmo
 
Servicing the Historic St. Elmo District and the famous Lookout Mountain Incline Railway
 
 
 
*Route 16: Northgate
 
Servicing the Northshore District, Riverview Plaza, and Northgate Mall. This line is worth riding just for its scenic value - the twist and turns through the foresty neighborhood of Hixson Pike are beautiful!
 
 
 
Most busses operate 5:00 am - 12:00 am on Mon - Fri, 7:00 am - 12:00 am Sat, and 12:00 pm - 5:30 pm Sun.

Special reduced fares require a photo ID issued at the CARTA bus depot.
  
More information on routes and scheduling can be found at CARTA's website, carta-bus.org, and several establishments around town keep copies of printed schedules. Also, CARTA's Bus Tracker, a web app providing maps and arrival times for the entire fleet in real time, is very handy when getting around town!
+
CARTA schedules are available at many of the local banks, shopping malls, social service agencies, hospitals, colleges, universities, the downtown post office, libraries and through CARTA.
