TransCor America, LLC, (TCA) based in Nashville, Tennessee, was originally established in 1990. Acquired by Corrections Corporation of America in 1994, the Company has grown to become the largest and most experienced detainee/prisoner transportation company in the United States.

In 2008 alone, we transported over 56,785 detainees/prisoners for local, state and federal agencies. We transport males and females, adults and juveniles, by ground and via charter aircraft. We are knowledgeable and experienced in the unique issues affecting detainees/prisoners with special medical needs, and we know how to transport them safely, securely, and in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
