We cover about a four-square mile area that includes most of downtown Knoxville and the UT campus.
Give us a call and tell us where you're at...and where you want to go. We'll let you know if we've got you covered. 865-722-0779
The quickest way to get a ride is to text us your name, # of people in your party, location, destination, and preferred time.
But...if you see us...flag us down! Shout out "KISS CABOOSE!"
Or...give us a call at 865-722-0779. Just note that if we're driving, we may send you to voicemail or reply with a text asking you to text us back.
The term "inclement" is subjective. Basically, our Drivers will determine if it's safe enough to be on the roads. And let's face it...the Knoxville weather can change minute-to-minute. So we may be on the road in the mornings...then shut down operations for a couple of hours to wait out a storm...and be back on the road in time to get our Riders to their favorite night spots. Your safety is paramount...and we take that VERY seriously.
We offer tip based services. We do not charge for rides. Simply tip your driver as you see fit.
Our Drivers' primary earnings come from your tips...and they really work hard at getting you to where you want to go safely...with lots of laughs along the way.
Each Driver will have the capability to receive cash, of course, but can also receive tips via Venmo, Square, and CashApp.
We average 20+ hours per week. Most weeks, we spend over 20 hours on the road. Please follow us on Instagram or Facebook where we post our hours of operation each week.
Absolutely! But we're only available on a first come, first serve basis. Give us a call as soon as you know you need us. We'll let you know how you can sponsor our cart and driver for a few hours or for the day.
Remember...reservations depend on availability...but certainly give us a call at 865-722-0779.
Note: We don't rent out the vehicles for you to drive. The KISS Caboose comes with driver included.
Oh man...are YOU going to have some fun. "Twinkie" and "Herbie" are our microvans. Think of them as a smaller version of a VW Van. They're mid-90s Subaru Sambars that seat six fun-loving passengers, which includes your own KISS Caboose Ambassador who is highly knowledgeable about the Knoxville area, restaurants, and special events. Every seat has its own seat belt for your safety. If you have little ones...we encourage you to bring your own car/booster seat, as we will not provide that safety equipment.
Yes. We provide both point-to-point service and offer a variety of tours.
We do have our regular paths we travel, but no set schedule to be at any one point at any one time. We respond to those in need at the moment they need us. Best practice is to shout out and wave us down when you see us...or text us at 865-722-0779.
Huge thanks goes out to Calvin Mattheis of Knoxville News Sentinel for publishing some of these great photos of the KISS Caboose!
