Trolley goes close to everything downtown. Get an all day pass and ride and get off to visit The Visitor Center, Beale St, or shopping. Great way to get around town.

My family and I really enjoyed this. Trolley drivers were so nice and quick to answer any questions you may have about the city. There was a lot of history to learn in this city.

The trolley pick up was right outside our hotel which was awesome, so we never had a need to move the car the whole time we were in Memphis. Trolley drivers were very helpful at letting us know where we needed to get on and off and the cost was only $1 per person per trip.

We found this the easiest way to move from one area to another. I recommend purchasing a full day pass, if you are downtown and plan on visiting several areas you will love it! The drivers vary on friendliness, but we were fine with each one we encountered. When we were dropped off at the Bass Pro Shop, the driver... More

Great price. Fun to ride. Comes by every 15 or so minutes. We rode it only once because we enjoy walking.

Themed transportation around the city center visiting key tourist attractions and businesses. Cost very little for a all day pass, and it is worth it for making a city tour possible in a day. This system will take you from all downtown Hotels to places like the Riverfront and to Beale Street and the Civil Rights Museum. You can ride... More

This is my favorite thing to do whenever we visit Memphis. to e it's a historic experience. It is a short ride but, it will give you a little flavor of downtown Memphis. And for $1 it can be a fun memory souvenir.

Although it turned out we were quite close to the riverfront, this was an excellent way to travel for one dollar each which you put in the machine behind the driver. Lovely to see so many locals used it too!

We have been on the trolley *though the one in the picture has changed to a bus type. It is very nice and will take you from one end of downtown Memphis to the other. Just past Beale street the trolley has a stop and a few blocks up will be a spaghetti factory which we highly recommend. Too much... More
