Come orientarsi in città

Public transport is not very reliable in Memphis and the most efficient way to cover the sprawling city is by renting a car, although traffic congestion can make driving a slow business, 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, and 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.
