[Caption: MBRU met with Shelby County Mayor Lee Harris to talk funding for MATA!]
Greetings, transit warriors! Our next neighborhood town hall is THIS week! We’ll be at the Orange Mound Community Center (2572 Park) on Thursday, October 18th from 5-7 PM. We wanna talk with residents of Orange Mound, Bethel Grove, and surrounding neighborhoods about how to make MATA service work better for you. Hop on the #57 Park bus and join us!
Also, MBRU is going to bat for more transit funding and more neighborhood bus service! Last week, our Executive Committee met with Shelby County Mayor Lee Harris to talk about how to make MATA stronger. We want to thank Mayor Harris and his team for supporting public transit in Memphis, and we look forward to working with them on solutions that bus riders can get behind. We’re also getting ready for MATA’s next Board meeting, where they will be voting on a revised list of service changes. We want to be sure that MATA is listening to the community’s needs, so we encourage you to attend on Thursday, October 25th at 3:30 PM. This meeting will be at the Hollywood Community Center (1560 N. Hollywood), and riders can get there on the #32 or #8 bus!
