“Updates to the operation”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

Due to suspicious fires on 2 trollies, their operation has been suspended until further notice. They were a good mode of transport in downtown Memphis, but no one has stated the causes. Old, yes maybe, lack of maintenance, yea maybe but no one in MATA has said. But the fleet is down 2 trollies and service would be irregular so off to the modern electric buses.

“No more trolley”
Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

Sad to day there is no more trolley despite what hotel workers say. It caught on fire so a cab is the way to go. We waited forever for the bus that replaced the trolley but it never came. There is lots to see so bring your walking shoes.

“CHEAP WAY TO SEE THE CITY”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

For 1.25 you can see the city or buy a day pass. Hop on and off as often as you like. We caught the trolley in front of the visitor center and mud park Riverfront. We toured the Lorraine hotel, shops down Main street which there plenty to eat and shop. Goes by St Jude hospital. Beale Street ....which is a must. Esp. at night. where they block of the street to traffic.

“Cute”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

Ride a an old trolley bus round downtown Memphis. $1 each trip or less than $4 to ride all day. Main street is a lovely street. Ride the loop and see downtown to the Mississippi and back.

“For a buck!”
Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

Take the Riverside trolley to get a full view of downtown Memphis. It gives you a view of a lot of historic places. You can ride all the way around and get off where you started. If you get off you pay again to ride. There are wonderful ambassadors to help you find your way just on the streets. Look for the bright blue shirts and white hats.
