Trolley, Memphis: 14 reviews and 27 photos
It's a trolley. Early form of a Subway or Metro. Runs on the street stopping at set locations to pickup and drop-off passengers. It does has limited reach. It runs from South Memphis (Central Station) north for about 2 miles on Main Street. Some of the trolleys, loop around at the north end, and come south along the river, providing access to riverfront locations. Main Street has two-directions for the trolley's, north to south and south to north. It's one-way on the riverfront, north to south, so you'll have to do complete circles to get to and from a Main Street location using the Riverfront trolley.
