As part of Gray Line Worldwide, Gray Line Tennessee has been committed to responsible tourism and traveler safety for the past 110 years.
At Gray Line Tennessee, we promise to follow the cleaning recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and other governing bodies and implement changes that are important to our guests.
Using your feedback and the best available guidance, here are the steps we’re taking to protect you and our employees, as we work to stop the spread of COVID-19 and help us all enjoy Nashville safely.
Gray Line Tennessee is also proud to be a part of Nashville’s Good to Go program — a hospitality safety program courtesy of Nashville Convention & Visitors Corporation.
This new training and certification program offers customers greater peace of mind about a company’s adherence to the most current policies suggested by leading infectious disease experts in America. We proudly display the Good to Go signage at our ticket kiosks and sales locations.

Daily Employee Wellness Checks
We ask all of employees (and customers) to remain home if they are not feeling well. At the beginning of each shift, we are requiring our drivers to complete a daily wellness check. Every employee is asked to certify that they do not have a fever above 100⁰F and that they are not experiencing any symptoms associated with the coronavirus.
Cleanliness and Sanitization
Before and after every trip, we thoroughly disinfect each bus according to CDC recommended guidelines.
Sanitation Stations & Social Distancing on Every Vehicle
For the protection of our guests and employees, we’ve installed hand sanitizer stations at the entrance of every vehicle. We’ve also roped off the first row of all of our trolleys and we’ve installed plexiglass behind our drivers on our double deckers to help ensure a safe social distance between our guests and their driver.
Additionally, all employees are required to wear face masks while serving customers (as mandated by the Governor’s four-phase reopening plan), and drivers will step off their vehicles before guests enter and exit.
We do not require our guests to wear face masks, but we do encourage you to wear them when you are within 6’ of another guest outside your household.
Since 1973, we’ve been there for our customers’ travel needs — and now is no different. Even throughout these unprecedented times we have not experienced a single report of sickness or illness from our employees. We are committed to continuing to serve you.
Enjoy your tour and have fun, knowing that you can trust our team to provide the safest environment possible. Thank you for choosing to tour with us and have a wonderful day in Nashville.
Capacity & Schedule
As we follow best practices and guidelines, many of our vehicles will operate below full capacity to give you plenty of room to spread out. Additionally, we have modified our schedules to best serve our customers and meet your needs for tour times.
Our website is updated in real-time to reflect our tour schedule, and we will communicate with our customers promptly about any scheduling changes, if they are necessary.
