We stayed in a hotel that was pretty much within walking distance of anything downtown, but one night it started raining on us. The trolley stop was really close to our hotel which made it convenient. It only cost $1 each to ride one way. It made for a great ride and we stayed dry!

Very good way to get around in Memphis. Was given Avery detailed map of the routes. And we could catch it right outside the htotels

At the time of our visit it cost 1USD for a round trip of Memphis and saves a lot of walking in the downtown area.

We just missed the trolley that ran on the track and the wheeled trolley stopped for us. Bumpy, clattery ride--hard on the tail bone and darn near shook the fillings out of our teeth. And about 1/2 way through the route the driver got out for a 10 minute break. Two passengers left while he was gone.

Quaint looking buses run instead of the trolleys which apparently have not run for some time. Check first!

Boarding is only $1! Every trolley has wheelchair lifts that pick you up from the curb. We were told by one driver that MATA is in the process of restoring some of the streetcars to put back into service. Every driver was very nice and completely helpful. They all gave some information about the sights along the way.

Travel to South and North Main within close proximity to Beale Street, Memphis, the Main Street Trolley is the means of transport. Drivers were always able to give guidance and it is a great experience.

Quick cheap transportation to most things in Downtown Memphis-gets you to South Main, close to Beale Street, and to North Main also. Costs $1 each way and kids love it. You must get on and off at designated stops only-the drivers will assist you with directions.

Still it is a great deal. A buck will get you anywhere downtown. The locals use it regularly, so at times it can get a bit crowded.
