Trolleys return to Main Street
Trolleys return to Main Street
Posted on 04/30/2018
The wait is over. Main Street trolleys are rolling through Downtown Memphis once again.

Trolleys return to Main StreetAfter a ribbon cutting outside of the North Main Street trolley facility, they made their grand return to the tracks at 11 a.m. Monday after nearly four years out of service. Refurbishing the trolley system cost more than $10 million, but city leaders say they wanted to make sure the work was done right and without cutting any corners.

“The trolleys are truly part of the fabric downtown,” said Mayor Jim Strickland. "It's great for the people who work Downtown, it's great for the business Downtown, and it's really important to the tourists."

Trolley rides will be free for the first two weeks of service. Starting May 15, rides will cost $1 each way. They’ll run every half hour.
