The trolley wasn't quite like the trolleys of San Francisco, but they got us around. The trolley has three lines, runs towards the river front or around the main street area. The downtown Memphis area is relatively easy to get around and the trolley runs throughout downtown. The drivers of the trolley were all polite and helpful, directed us as... More

We stayed downtown right on Court Square, so we left the car in the garage all weekend and just went everywhere on the trolley and on foot. It was super convenient and reasonably priced.

At $1 each way the trolley is a fast and economical way to see all the shops & restaurants that line the pedestrian-only main street. Just one block from the Peabody, we took the trolley several times while in Memphis. From Central BBQ & The Civil Rights Museum on one end to the Bass Pro Pyramid we traveled quickly and... More

Rode the trolly one evening to get back to the parking garage. Affordable. Would recommend it for an inexpensive way to see the surroundings.

I enjoyed the trolley, it was only $1.00 , and it got us up and down Main Street pretty quickly. The drivers were very friendly, answered any questions we had and helped with directions.

Very convenient for exploring downtown area. Walk to lower side restaurants a little farther than seniors wanted to walk. For $1 fee it was a bargain. Friendly conductor & fellow passengers.

The trip only cost $1 each and it gave us a fun overview of the entire area. This is not a tour as such...the driver does not provide any information. The map we received from the Hampton gave us the information we needed to understand where we were during the trip.

The Main street trolley passed by the end of the road where we had rented an apartment. The day ticket for $3.50 per person was good value as we used the trolley system to explore the city and get an idea of the location of sights we wanted to visit later in our visit. The trolleys ran about every 15... More

We rode a mix of trolleys and busses due to the weather but never had to wait more than 10 minutes for one. Great way to get from one place to the other. The drivers are very friendly and informative.
