Jennifer Jones - The Downtown Kid

"Hop On. Tune In. Rock Out. Get on the bus and take in Memphis’ unique and vibrant culture. From the Jungle Room at Graceland to the jungle experience at Bass Pro, soulful bass lines at STAX to baseline drives at AutoZone Park, the Memphis HOP introduces you to the best in Memphis cultural attractions."

The Memphis Hop is a unique approach to touring the city, and it gives people the power to explore some of the best venues, historical landmarks, restaurants, shops, and more that downtown Memphis has to offer, all at your own pace.

Where to Buy Tickets

Perhaps the easiest way to purchase tickets to ride is through the Memphis Hop website directly. However, if you're already on foot, you can get them in person at their brick-and-mortar location, 664 Marshall Ave, or the Ticket Booth next to Hard Rock Cafe (2nd & Beale Street). Tickets are valid for 24 hours after purchase.

Adult tickets (13 and up) are $30, and youth tickets (12 and under) are $20. Your ticket allows you a pass to ride all day to as many destinations as you'd like. According to their ticket purchasing policy, "Customers will receive a full refund with 24 hours notice of cancellation. Customers will also receive a full refund in case of operator cancellation due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. Contact us by phone to cancel or inquire about a cancellation. No-shows will be charged the full price." There is also a small service fee per ticket when using the online platform.
