Garrison Chosen to Lead Memphis Area Transit Authority - Memphis Daily News



Memphis Area Transit Authorities new president and general manager, Ron Garrison, recently worked for Proterra, Inc. And before that, he was executive director of StarMetro in Tallahassee Florida. After decades of the worst bus system in the USA, we will hopefully get change for the better under new leadership, such as new busses that do not rock and rattle the passengers, more buses that are run more often and on time, WI-FI on and busses and near bus stops, real time GPS tracking along each route, and high quality bike racks that can actually hold more than just two bikes --- how about five bikes; and can we please get some restrooms along each route. Now here is a true dreamers request for sure, let's have a shopping bus that runs every hour whereby there is plenty of leg room to move around, a place under the bus to roll shopping carts, and top racks on the inside for backpacks and coats, and last, but not least, a restroom on the bus.

The Rise of Private 'Luxury' Mass Transit Buses - CityLab

This is a great idea. We should have a mass transit option for shopping with the ability to role bikes and grocery carts and baby strollers under the bus. We should have Wi-Fi and restrooms and the ability to lay back and relax until we actually get to our final destination and all without having to look up from a good book to keep an eye out for our final stop or else we might pass it up. This type of system could have facilities along the drop off points with plenty of space to spread out and wait for the return ride.
