Cynthia Bailey, Organizer and Co-Chair of Memphis Bus Riders Union, has been using public transportation in Memphis for 29 years.
“I just want a better bus service out here. This is a passion for me. I have passion for people who catch the bus, hard working people who go to work every day. So, I mean, I would do this until be get the best services we can,” Bailey said.
The ad hoc committee will take community members’ feedback and make a recommendation to the full Shelby County Commission.
