Once when the trolley line ran it was a great way to get around downtown but since there were a couple of fires and the trolleys had to be shut down buses are what is now offered. No Fun!!! Memphis has no idea when the trolley fleet will be up and running so don't plan your visit downtown hoping to... More

Felt obliged to do a lap with this trolley as it's a good way to see a part of the city. Interesting commentary and the river bank area was for me a highlight. Worth doing if from out of town

This is an excellent cheap way to get around downtown Memphis for one dollar a ride. Get on for a dollar and get off wherever you like. The drivers are very professional, helpful and friendly. We felt very safe on these trolleys and we travelled on them all week long. Even the other riders on these trolley's were very helpful... More

It is very nice and comfy. $1 per ride - or they have deals for more rides - just ask the driver. Stop by the Welcome Memphis or just catch a trolley on Riverside to see what it is all about. We used it several times just to shorten our walks. It feels just like a trolly inside but the... More

There are Bus Trolley's that are substituting for the... More

How is it the city can call a bus a trolley. These are not trolleys, they are busses! I can ride a bus anywhere.

We took the trolley to go into town and to just see the town. The train was clean, old fashion looking". The kids had so much fun going for a ride and it was cheap.
