Greetings, transit warriors! We had a great time at MBRU’s August meeting! The group debriefed on our first town hall of the year, learned more about Pittsburgh, PA’s bus riders union, and talked about what Shelby County’s recent elections mean for public transit. Be sure to join us next month: Saturday, September 8th from 12-2 PM at A Step Ahead Foundation (Suite 451 in the Crosstown Concourse).
Also, MBRU is back with another neighborhood town hall: this month we’re heading to Frayser to hear your concerns! This will be August 30th, from 4-6 PM at the Ed Rice Community Center. We want to get input from bus riders all over the city about how you use MATA service, and what your transit needs are in your communities–so if you’re a resident or community stakeholder in Frayser or Raleigh, come join us!
Finally, MBRU’s new TRANSIT SURVEY is now in Spanish! We want to hear from riders all over Memphis about how you use MATA service in your neighborhoods. We’re working on making versions that are accessible for even more Memphians. Take the online version in English here, and here is la encuesta en Español. We’ll also have paper surveys at all our town halls this year!
