🚨 MISSING! 🚨

Our new trolley kitten, Birney, has gone missing. Last seen on Friday, September 17th at the Trolley Car Barn. We are offering a $50 Reward for his return. Birney is a white and yellow/ginger Tabby - 5 months old. He was last seen wearing his red tear-away collar with reflective paw prints. There is a red jingle bell and his silver name plate attached to the collar. 🐈 🐱

We are concerned he might have gotten caught somewhere and is roaming around without his collar.

If you find him, please call/text us here at 214.727.2919 or email us at [email protected].

Tossing an item in a recycling bin without knowing if it belongs there is referred to as wish-cycling — a cycle that needs to be broken.

Ink pens? ❌ No. While you can’t recycle them, you can use their parts for other things like plant hangers or a lamp.

Single-use coffee cups? ✔️Yes. Plastic lids, cardboard sleeves and cups can go into your recycling bin.

Bowling balls? ❌ No. But it doesn’t stop them from turning up in recycling bins. Donate them instead.

Old or lost keys? ✔️Yes. While you won’t be able to put these in your home bin, you can recycle them with scrap metal at your local recycling center’s metal bin.

This building was once home to celebrities such as Judy Garland, Dean Martin, Elvis Presley and Liza Minnelli and is one of the only pre World War II buildings left in the city. What do you think of the designs!?

Our goal is to continue to enrich the lives of those around us by preserving, restoring, maintaining and running, historic streetcars while operating a system that is representative of how electric streetcar systems in the early part of the 20th century here in Dallas, in America, and around the World. Volunteer opportunities Virtually every part of MATA’s operation utilizes volunteers. Whether you are interested in learning to operate a streetcar in public service or would like to work behind the scenes in publications, office, public relations or engineering we have a place for you in the MATA family. Many of our Motormen are Doctors, Attorneys or other professionals who find an opportunity to give back to the community by volunteering with the trolley. Perhaps you enjoy working with wood and restoring the craftsmanship of a bygone era or are mechanically inclined.

Our Story

In the late 1970’s The Vineyard Neighborhood Association began removing the asphalt from the surface of McKinney Avenue to expose the original red brick pavers as part of a beautification project. More was uncovered than bricks, however, and an idea was born. Lying dormant beneath the asphalt, were original streetcar tracks first laid in 1890 and paved over with the abandonment of the trolley system in 1956.

The McKinney Avenue Transit Authority (MATA) was the brainchild of 2 men, Restauranteur, Phil Cobb and trolley buff, Ed Landrum. Cobb and Landrum incorporated the Non-Profit MATA with the goal of returning streetcars to the red bricks of McKinney Avenue after a 33-year absence.

Today, after 2 expansions of the original 2.8-mile system, MATA streetcars operate 7 days a week, 365 days a year on a system of 4.6 miles of track stretching from the vibrant Uptown area, through the Klyde Warren Park and into the Downtown Arts District. In 2017, over 613,000 passengers rode the trolley.

Both visitors to Dallas and residents of Uptown and Downtown find that easy connections between trolleys and the trains of the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) make travel to and from areas of interest in Dallas and nearby cities easy.

I had the best Trolley Driver...Josh. He loves talking to people and getting to know them. He is very special. Thank you Josh for adding joy to my day.
Thank you for being open, clean, friendly and for posting about social distancing!
We are new to the area & plan to check out the trolly tomorrow & I have a couple questions. Where is s good place to park car ? We would be coming from DeSoto. What are some of the good places along the way we should stop at ? What are the operating hours ?
How's MATA's fleet following the tornado?
Are trolleys wheelchair accessible??
Would you consider saving a TTC's ALRV & CLRV from being scraped!?
Next on the line soon I hope!
Watching the PCC Car#4614 today!
MATA friends... I just wanted to reach out - as I'll be flying into Dallas on 13th July with my family, and heading out again on the 19th. It's been 25 years since I operated a trolley down McKinney Avenue, but I've still got my Motorman's pass... It would be lovely to say Hi to as many folks as possible. John Landrum, Earl Leeson, Andy Nold - who else from 1992-94 is still around? Would any of you be up for a little re-union, and the opportunity to meet Liza and Archie? And if you don't mind, I'd love to stick my head in the car barn and say Hi to my favourite little lady: 122...? I still miss her.
I spotted Emma at the turntable yesterday afternoon...
We are back in service!! they got the cars cleared.
