Our city’s public transportation system is an essential part of life for many of my constituents and would be a great supplement to traveling within the city for others. Let’s fight to make it better.
What You Get From JB Smiley, Jr:
I stand with local organizations that have fought for over a decade to increase the funding and create more efficient routes for the Memphis Area Transit Authority (MATA). As County Commissioner, I am committed to supporting any steps that create a more robust MATA for both today’s bus riders and our County’s future.
With improved routes, many of my constituents will gain access to more job opportunities, additional entertainment and dining options for their families, and a greater sense of connection to Memphis and Shelby County – both in a literal and philosophical sense.
