Great Inexpensive Travel Option

Great way to travel thru downtown Memphis for a buck. Make sure you have dollar bills for the ride as they don't give change.

We used the trolly to travel on a rainy day to Beale Street for Dinner. Got it right outside our Hotel Sheraton Downtown Memphis.

They use motorized trolley cars now instead of the trolley that runs on the track. We felt like it didn't run often enough and there were some characters riding if you know what I mean.

Good, cheap was to get around Memphis. $1 per trip or $3.50 for unlimited all day rides. Sort of bumpy in places, but that is to be expected.

I visited Memphis in June 2011. It was pretty hot at that time. Nice to ride the trolley and see a bit of the city. Just be wary because there are some sketchy people sometimes that are around the trolley stops, but otherwise it's a nice inexpensive activity to do while in Memphis.

It was very easy to find our way around and all the drivers were very helpful. We travelled out to the Sun Studios on the bus.

We stayed in a hotel that was pretty much within walking distance of anything downtown, but one night it started raining on us. The trolley stop was really close to our hotel which made it convenient. It only cost $1 each to ride one way. It made for a great ride and we stayed dry!

At the time of our visit it cost 1USD for a round trip of Memphis and saves a lot of walking in the downtown area.

We just missed the trolley that ran on the track and the wheeled trolley stopped for us. Bumpy, clattery ride--hard on the tail bone and darn near shook the fillings out of our teeth. And about 1/2 way through the route the driver got out for a 10 minute break. Two passengers left while he was gone.
