MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A MATA spokesperson says the MATA trolleys will not be running in time for the 2015 Memphis in May International Festival.

Trolley service was suspended in 2014 after several trolleys caught fire, and MATA says they are facing a lot of red tape to get their new trolley system approved.

However, the group's CEO says they are looking for ways to improve trolley access over time.

He hopes a similar, albeit limited, form public transportation will be running by the end of 2015.
