Greetings, transit warriors! Last week, MATA proposed a swath of new service changes that would go into effect this fall. These changes include cutting seven routes, and changing frequency and weekend service on many more–read the full list here. With this many changes in the works, we need to make sure riders’ needs are represented before MATA votes on them at their September Board meeting. Please come out to a public hearing in the next two weeks and make your voice heard!
Also, MBRU is back with another neighborhood town hall: we’re heading to Frayser NEXT Thursday 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! RSVP on Facebook here.
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!
