THE MEMPHIS INNOVATION CORRIDOR (FORMERLY THE MAC)
The Memphis Innovation Corridor Project evolved from the Midtown Alternatives Analysis (AA) that was initiated in 2012.
The AA builds on MATA’s 2012 Short-Range Transit Plan to “create a framework for future development of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) on highest ridership corridors.” Project components include the implementation of a new branded high capacity 8-mile BRT line with 10-minute headways during peak periods with dedicated lanes on two miles of road through Downtown Memphis.
Just as the backbone is the body’s center for activity and movement, Midtown is Memphis’ center of activity and movement for our public transportation system. So with this study, we’re all about Connecting Memphis from the Inside Out.
People who live, work, play, study and travel to and from: Downtown, Midtown, Overton Square, Cooper Young, north and south Memphis, The University of Memphis and other area communities are strongly invited to participate.
"Our busiest routes with the most ridership intersect in the midtown area. We definitely invite the public’s input to help explore how we can enhance service…” MATA
MAC meetings are taking place in various locations acros the focus area including: Midtown, Overton Square and Crosstown.
