I want to thank UCHRA for providing efficient and very affordable subsidized Cookeville-Nashville-Cookeville bus shuttle service … Indeed, UCHRA is so blessed with such good, kind, helpful, caring, thoughtful, and responsible employees which are very hard to find these days!

Attention UCHRA drivers: I want to take this opportunity to thank you for all that you have done for me; you all have been so incredibly kind to me and I don’t know how to thank you. I think I speak for my dad and my stepmom when I say thank you for your compassion, love, and kindness towards me!

Thank you! I needed transportation to Kroger’s. When I called your office, I was told someone would pick me up about 11 o’clock. That gentleman was right on time, and on the return trip, he brought my groceries to the door.

I have been using [UCHRA Public Transportation] as my only source of transportation since March. I am in a wheelchair and require assistance. I have never met a more caring, helpful group of people in my life. All of the drivers are fantastic. They are always ready with a smile or a listening ear and a helping hand.
