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

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.

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!
