Getting Around Memphis
As most residents own a car, public transport is not very
reliable and the most efficient way to cover the sprawling city is
by car, although traffic congestion can make it slow, even more so
during rush hours. The city is simple to navigate and parking is
generally easy to find. To hire a car drivers must be 21 years old,
but most agencies have higher rates for under-25s; some require an
International Driving Permit as well as a valid driver''s license.
Public transport is available, but consists of slow and infrequent
buses, as well as the more useful Main Street Trolley that covers
downtown in a circular route. Taxis are also available and must be
booked by phone.
