I am concerned that the people of the Millington Area cannot reach their full potential because of the lack of public transportation. If we can fix the problem the citizens of our community will thrive – and our community will prosper.
For a short time we had a daily MATA bus that took people from Millington to the Raleigh area of Memphis. Where they had the option of transferring to another bus, which could take them almost anywhere in Shelby County. When that stopped we became an isolated community, unless you had a personal vehicle at your disposal.
We invite you to help us solve this problem. Take our survey (coming soon), join our committee, be supportive. Call 872-4357 for more information.
Why do I care? As the Volunteer Director of the Millington Crisis Center I deal with trying to get people from one place to another all the time. This could really be the answer to some of my prayers.
