The main street trolley (or in the winter, the trolley "bus") is a cheap ($1/pp each way) ride through the main drag of Memphis. Bus drivers are knowledgable and will get you to your closest destination

This is a cool thing to be on - but the trolleys were not running. Beautiful avenues to be walking on - even safe at night..

The Memphis trolley cars are clean and well maintained. They run frequently and the drivers are helpful to tourists. This trolley line will take you from the Convention Center to Beale Street.

The busses are really quaint with lots of wood. We did some $3 day passes on the Main Street (red) busses and took some $1 rides on the Riverfront (green) buses. The bus drivers are all very friendly, helpful and chatty.

The trolleys are still out of commission, but the buses they have as replacements are great. We hopped on the Riverfront bus. $1 each for one complete circle. I actually think the buses may be better than the trolleys because they seemed to take us...More

Hi you can get the trolley bus to Beale street then go the Rock and Soul museum and they run an hourly free bus service to Graceland and Sun Studios then back to the Rock and Soul Museum. Hope this helps you!
