While the Main Street Trolley System was undergoing renovation they had an alternate trolley that was supposed to come by every 10 to 15 minutes. Waited almost 45 minutes so gave up and walked.

Great way to get around Main Street . For a dollar you can hop on and off and get to anywhere on Main Street.

The trolley is by far the easiest way to get around Memphis, even while the roadworks necessitate some minor rerouting. Each ride costs just $1 and a day ticket, giving unlimited travel until 0200 the next morning, is available for $3.50. Beware though, the machines...More

The real trolley was not running due to some weeks of track repair. However, bus service on the adjacent streets was inexpensive ($ 1.00 per ride) and came every ten minutes or so. People on the buses were friendly and the drivers extremely helpful to...More

For only $1.00 you can see a large portion of downtown Memphis. It is an easy way to travel to many of the downtown destinations. We loved it!

We are staying at the Holiday-Inn, 160 Union Avenue. How close is the Trolley stop? Will the Trolley's be running on March 24-27? Are they like streetcars on the tracks or busses on wheels?

Not sure We stayed at the Comfort Inn and the trolley was right out the back door. The trolley should be pretty close by to your hotel. Pay once and ride all day. On the trolley you will get to Beale Street, the Gibson... More

Sadly, I discovered the demise of the trolley. Bus transports one through the downtown. It goes to a guitar factory & nearby is where a museum for Dr. M.L. Kiing, jr can be found.
