• Main Street Trolley 

    Riverfront on Main
    MATA's vintage trolley rail system is working on 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  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.

    MATA accommodates passengers with reasonable modifications which may include helping passengers insert money into fare boxes, allowing passengers to eat, drink, or take medicine aboard a transit vehicle to avoid a medical problem, and permitting passengers to board separately from their mobility devices when the passenger can control the movement of the device. 

    Additionally, MATA will make reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities during periods of construction, road closures and special events that disrupt normal vehicle patterns. MATA will also provide additional  time for persons with disabilities trying to reach MATA's vehicles and while boarding or alighting vehicles when requested. 

    Passengers may request modifications in advance or at the time they are needed. Passengers are not required to say "reasonable modification" when asking for an accommodation. MATA staff will work with passengers to find an alternative approach to accommodate their accessibility needs if a policy, practice, or procedural modification cannot be fulfilled.

    In addition, MATA will provide information (upon request) in various formats such as large print, Braille, etc. to help persons with disabilities. MATA also has TTY services available.

    To request information in any of these formats or for a reasonable accommodation, call MATA's certification department at 901.722.7105. Passengers may also request a copy of MATA's reasonable modifications/accommodations policy.


    MATA will attempt to provide timely information regarding any bus disruptions that may affect a passenger’s trip. However, information may change quickly without notice due to any unforeseen circumstances. Service disruption information will be posted on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/rideMATA/) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/rideMATA). Information can also be accessed via http://mata.transloc.com/.
