Greetings, transit warriors! MBRU is happy to announce our new TRANSIT SURVEY! We want to hear from riders all over Memphis about how you use MATA service in your neighborhoods. We’re working on making versions in Spanish and for people with visual impairments. Take the online version here, and we’ll have paper survey at all our town halls this year!
On that note, MBRU’s South Memphis Town Hall is just around the corner We’re coming to South Memphis to listen and gather in-person feedback from residents, stakeholders, and politicians. We will also have the Shelby County Election Commission helping register people to vote! Meet us Thursday, July 26th from 4-6 PM.We’ll be at Second Baptist Church at the corner of McLemore and Florida–right along the #12 and #17!
Finally, MBRU had a great time at our July meeting! We went over our progress in kickstarting this year’s outreach, took a look at transit justice in Pittsburgh, PA, and talked about the importance of engaging with Shelby County’s upcoming elections. Thanks so much to A Step Ahead Foundation for hosting us! If you missed it, don’t worry–join us for our next meeting on August 11th at A Step Ahead (Suite 451 in the Crosstown Concourse).
MBRU holds meetings on the 2nd Saturday of each month from 12-2 PM; our next meeting is July 14th at the Crosstown Concourse.
