Trolley car, Memphis TN

Main Street Trolley and Riverfront Loop

What is the most nostalgic way to experience historic downtown Memphis TN?

The Main Street Trolley of course. The Main Street Trolley follows the same route as its mule drawn predecessor without the occasional pile of mule dung.

All the intricate details of the trolleys of old have been faithfully restored to their original elegance. Solid brass seat and window accents, hand carved mahogany corbels and antique lighting fixtures. Riding the Main Street Trolley is like stepping back in time to a simpler day when public transportation actually worked and the world moved at a slower more relaxed pace. When you visit Memphis TN try if you can to stay at one of the hotels in the downtown area so you can ride the Main Street Trolley to the majority of your tourist destinations and experience how the world should really work.

If you are planning a visit to Memphis TN and would like more information about the Main Street Trolley check out the Memphis Area Transit Authority website at
