The McKinney Avenue Transit Authority is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that operates the M-Line Trolley.
Founded in 1983 with the intent of returning heritage streetcars to the streets of Dallas, the McKinney Avenue Transit Authority successfully accomplished that goal in July of 1989. The M-Line’s air-conditioned and heated restored vintage trolleys operate normally 365 days a year, providing safe, clean, reliable, and convenient public transportation free of charge (except charters) in Dallas’ vibrant Uptown Neighborhood.
Our mission is to maintain the unique, historic ambiance and character of our vintage trolley service for residents, businesses and visitors to the Uptown, Downtown and Klyde Warren Park areas in Dallas as a key component of the City’s transportation system. To provide schools, businesses, associations and the general public access to our technical and historical links to Dallas’ past.
