"Vintage Street Cars" Top 5 Page for this destination Trolley Tip by Hopkid

Trolley, Memphis: 15 reviews and 32 photos


The Memphis Area Transit Authority operates three downtown lines of vintage street cars or trolleys. They are a great way to get around to many of the sights in and around the downtown area and also just to take to get nice views of the Mississippi River. The trolley fleet is mostly made up of restored Portuguese and Australian street cars some dating back to 1909. They look brand spanking new and are very attractive. Fares are $1.00 per ride or you can get a 2-trip pass for $1.50, a one-day pass for $3.50, or a 3-day pass for $8.00. There are also other pricing options and discounts for seniors and persons with disabilities.

Service is pretty extensive as well. All three lines operate 7 days a week with the more popular Riverfront and Main Street lines running every 10 minutes. Go to the website to get the details on schedule. This website also has a nice write-up on the history of this restored line: http://world.nycsubway.org/us/memphis/
