This would have been an ok tour if the windows weren't tinted. We couldn't see anything. Thank goodness it was free!!!

A fun and convenient way to get Uptown for a change of scenery and some great eating. The trolley is clean and riders and drivers are friendly. There are plenty of stops so it is convenient to get on and off.

I still can't believe it is free but it is. Great way to see the uptown area if you are a tourist - it is slow, but you can pop on and off. Check out their website for a live trolley view.

The McKinney Ave. trolley is a free and easy gambol through Uptown Dallas. It moves at an appropriately slow pace, feels a bit shaky, but is never less than diverting. A good introduction to an interesting part of Dallas; one that can be interrupted by...More

We hopped on this free trolly to help us get a feel for the lay of the land. It was our first time in Dallas and it did just that. It takes about 50 minutes to do the loop.

We ride the whole line to see what is new then decide what we want to go back and see and where we want to eat. Kids love it.

I have a 1.5 yr old daughter. Can I take her in the trolley? I mean, can she travel on my lap, without a car seat?

Yes, the trolley does not move fast so I'm sure they would allow a child to ride in your lap.
This was my experience yesterday with a very, rude operator, I wonder if the conductor you had was ZACK? The following occurred on August 6, 2015, trolley #754, and we arrived at the Main McKinney Station, where we exited at 8:43pm, and ZACH was the conductor along with another young, male conductor: ZACK, our VERY YOUNG, male, operator and his young male companion, who also was on the trolley that my family and I, including YOUNG CHILDREN who were visiting from out-of-town, were in fear for our lives!! This young, male, full of testosterone was speeding and honking CONSTANTLY at EVERY pedestrian and car around us. I have lived in Uptown for 13 years and have been on the trolley a few times, prior to this incident...and THIS TIME, We were in fear for our safety and for the safety of all the other passengers inside the trolley...and for all the pedestrians and surrounding cars with people. We are in the process of not only complaining to the trolley company, we are also complaining to the Transportation Division 214.670.3161, with operators like ZACK, it's just a matter of time before someone seriously GETS HURT if not KILLED!!! I've read the other complaints, and it's obvious that there's a serious problem with SOME of the conductors!!! There are no seat belts, and this young, kid ZACK was SPEEDING!! Stay away, or if you like risking the safety of your loved ones, at least make sure you and your families lives are not in the hands of a YOUNG, HOT-HEADED MALE KID!! Please complain to ALL the appropriate authorities when you have an issue with this trolley company!!! When I asked (ZACK) for his name after we decided we chose to end our ride at the FIRST NEXT STOP... ZACK was VERY RUDE, and sarcastic to me, and told me that I could complaint to anyone that I wanted to, and yelled his name at me. This is unacceptable!!

Hello! The trolley is very limited in its range of service, running through Downtown and Uptown, but it never comes near the Westin, which is in North Dallas. Travel to Howell Street will best be served by taxi.
