I drove from NC. to Memphis. On my first day I rode around and made note of the places that I was interested in visiting. They were at least blocks away from each other. Most parking lots were around $10., for all day parking. I discovered the MATA (Memphis Area Transit Authority) Trolley system. For $3.50, you can ride all... More

We walked up and down main street every day during our trip but were never able to catch the trolley. We were told it ran every 15 minutes but didn't seem like it to me.

Easy to use and runs the length of Main just over 2 miles. Downside it quits at 11pm during the week and bit later weekends. A good walk one way won't hurt ya.

We were never in a rush so were willing to wait for it. Only $1 a ride which is great, $3.50 for a day pass which gives you access to bus' also, or $9 for a 3-day pass. Great Deal!! All the driver's we encountered were very helpful. All Trolley's under renovation - they have about (5) out right now,... More

This is a great way to see the sights. Hop on and hop off where you like. I didn't have a lot of time to spend in the city, so this transportation was just what I needed to see everything I wanted in a short amount of time.

A very bumpy ride through town but frequent service. We used it to avoid the heat and it took us through the pedestrian part of the city
