What’s Up With Transportation In TN?
To say that the transportation system in Memphis – and throughout Tennessee honestly – is tragic would be an understatement. To say the infrastructure in our city is lagging would be another understatement. To that end, we another exclusive in-studio interview on deck. Bacarra Mauldin (Deputy CEO) and Gary Rosenfeld (CEO) from Memphis Area Transit Authority (MATA) are talking about Governor Lee’s proposal, the (very remote) possibility of a light rail, the effect that Blue Oval City will have on I-40 and implementing the M Connect system. And of course, we must address the elephant in the room — all of the complaints about MATA service. They address the extraordinarily long wait times, bus shelters,and communication challenges. It’s another funky one!
