Fun Run!

It was kinda neat and just a fun ride and a very touristy thing to do! Especially, if you love trolleys!

Sadly the trolleys have been withdrawn from service due to some technical difficulties. They have been replaced by a bus service which follows most of the trolley route. $1 for a ticket.

Service has been temporarily suspended due to issues with the trolly cars. The service is slated to restart soon, as repairs are completed.

The trolley costs $1 for a ride. It takes you up and down the beautiful Main Street, so you don't have to walk too far or take a car to Beale Street or other places along the route. It is very convenient and quaint.

Just a pity the trolley's were not running on this day. We would have loved to have seen them. The whole place took you back in time.

We didn't realize the trolley system isn't working in Memphis. We picked a hotel with a trolley system right outside the front door. This should be updated with every business that is advertising since this doesn't seem to be in the plans to be fixed anytime soon.

I asked a local about the trolley, and was told that they are no longer running because paper would get caught under the wheels, pushed along the tracks, and catch on fire. So they were discontinued for safety reasons.

My husband had travelled to Memphis for years on business and I eventually decided to tag along. When I saw the trolley tours, I decided to take one and happened to get a great guide who was informative and entertaining. When my husband was available later that evening, we did another tour around the loop and he couldn't get over... More

The trolleys have not been running for at least a year now, and when they do run they burn up. It is also a waste of time since everything in downtown Memphis is in waking distance.

i always look forward to hopping the trolley when visiting Memphis. Being able to step out the front door of our hotel and hop the trolley to Beale St., Pearl's Oyster Bar, or just a trip or two around the downtown loop was always a pleasure. For 2015, however, the antique trolleys are down for restoration repairs, so I was... More
