Boxtown/Westwood On-Demand Transit Pilot Project

The Memphis Area Transit Authority will receive funding to implement a micro-transit on-demand project in the Boxtown/Westwood neighborhood of Memphis, a low-density, suburban neighborhood with a large elderly population and infrequent transit service. Riders will be able to request rides using a mobile application or call center to destinations such as healthcare, grocery stores or government services, as well as connect to the existing transit network.
