I know Greyhound has a station in Johnson City and other than bus tours, I personally don't know of any others.

Default Buses

It's my understanding that Kingsport has about 47,000 people and there is no bus system. Wow! does that not make for a conjested and polluted city?

No, actually there is very little traffic (comparably) in Kingsport. There IS a trolley bus that runs from old downtown to the outskirt shopping areas, but no real public transportation bus systems. it may have a a lot of people, but there sure is a lot of land too.

There is a Greyhound in Kingsport, TN. (Very very small station. Laughable. But we've used it.)

Also at megabus.com you can find buses that run from Knoxville to DC, then take a DC bus to a major city on the East Coast. I'm going from Knoxville to NY for forty bucks...woo hoo! (Gas has already hit $4 a gallon in NY so that's a lifesaver!) But the DC bus goes to PA, NYC, the Carolinas, and VA as well.

Also, there's the KATS that I just found out about.
Kats - Home

And this is a a great link someone on another forum left:
http://www.nettrans.org/

And this one might help:
District Three Governmental Cooperative - Transit Services Main Page

I know this post is old, but posting it for other readers that might browse by.

I love Kingsport because it's not congested! (With traffic...we do have Eastman so can't say much about pollution...but it's definitely not L.A. or NY!)

And there is a small public bus system, it's just not advertised well.

Grayhound is not the only option in TN.

You can ride Megabus from Memphis to Chicago. Megabus also runs from Knoxville to Washington DC.

On another note, you can ride Amtrak from Memphis north to St. Louis or south to New Orleans.

This thread is beyond old. "Klosk" eventually moved to the Tri-Cities and then moved away. That's how old it is.
