Predecessor[edit]

What was MATA's predecessor, and who operated it? Bus service has existed for MANY years in Memphis. The 9 Normal route, for example, was running in Memphis in 1975, and was considered an historic route at that time. It is believed to have operated since the days of the FIRST Memphis streetcars, but my sources are former riders, and are considered unacceptable as "original research". They're also rapidly dying off. Ragityman (talk) 19:47, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Routes[edit]

The fact box and the leader disagree on the number of active bus routes at 42 and 39. By my count the article lists 32 active and 5 eliminated. What's the real scoop? Ragityman (talk) 01:15, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

Route information on this page[edit]

It is my view that WP:NOT applies to this route infromation on this page, specificaly WP:NOTDIRECTORY and WP:NOTGUIDE. The route information is not WP:NOTABLE and has not place on this page. Please point to policies that support the route information on this page being notable, and not in violation of WP:NOT or gain WP:CONSENSUS that it should stay on other grounds (WP:IAR?). It has a very limited number of sources and only one is from WP:THIRDPARTY. CombatWombat42 (talk) 19:36, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
