Came ready to enjoy, nothing jumped out on any of the tourist or MATA web sites to say were not working. Sadly the bus replacement does nothing for me. Ended up driving to attraction and sites or walking in the baking heat. Gutted

What a great way to get around downtown. We stayed on a few times and just enjoyed the sceneries and the sounds. The weather was beautiful and that just made it even nicer. Next time we will get a weekend pass for sure.

Really enjoyed riding the trolley system...nice slow way to have a look at the waterfront and also downtown Memphis. Also nice when your legs are just tired from all the walking. Easy system to use. I was surprised to read that some of the trollies came from Australia. Wish we had kept the system in Brisbane. Now, more than 50... More

Due to suspicious fires on 2 trollies, their operation has been suspended until further notice. They were a good mode of transport in downtown Memphis, but no one has stated the causes. Old, yes maybe, lack of maintenance, yea maybe but no one in MATA has said. But the fleet is down 2 trollies and service would be irregular so... More

Sad to day there is no more trolley despite what hotel workers say. It caught on fire so a cab is the way to go. We waited forever for the bus that replaced the trolley but it never came. There is lots to see so bring your walking shoes.

For 1.25 you can see the city or buy a day pass. Hop on and off as often as you like. We caught the trolley in front of the visitor center and mud park Riverfront. We toured the Lorraine hotel, shops down Main street which there plenty to eat and shop. Goes by St Jude hospital. Beale Street ....which is... More

Ride a an old trolley bus round downtown Memphis. $1 each trip or less than $4 to ride all day. Main street is a lovely street. Ride the loop and see downtown to the Mississippi and back.

Take the Riverside trolley to get a full view of downtown Memphis. It gives you a view of a lot of historic places. You can ride all the way around and get off where you started. If you get off you pay again to ride. There are wonderful ambassadors to help you find your way just on the streets. Look... More

We took the trolley at night after walking around for several hours. It was a nice way to relax. I am sure you can see so much during the day on the ride but while we rode it was not crowded (as I am sure it can get during the day) and it was an enjoyable ride.
