• TROLLEY - EXTENDED MAINTENANCE INFO

      MATA's vintage trolley rail system is currently suspended to undergo extended maintenance on all trolley cars. As of June 10th, 2014, the trolley division of MATA is at work restoring trolley cars to bring service back to the Main Street Trolley line, followed by the Riverfront Trolley line. 

    For alternate service, please consider our shuttle routes or call 901-274-6282 for help with bus trip planning.

    Restoration work on the trolleys will focus on the five trolley cars we believe are in the best condition. The work will involve re-inspection, re-certification, and repair which requires many imported trolley parts for completion. After the first five trolley cars have been restored and re-certified for operation later this fall on the Main Street trolley line, the rest of the fleet will go through the same process and serve the other two trolley lines (Riverfront line and Madison line).

    A few of your favorite trolleys may even have a new color! Some of the trolleys in our fleet are over 50 years old and have been in service for over 20 years - these particular vintage trolley cars will require more time to service as we locate and import the proper trolley parts to complete their restoration. 

    Trolley Shuttle service - April 2015
    *Service to the Pyramid will start Wednesday, April 29th, 2015.
