MATA to Offer Reduced Fares for Students


The Memphis Area Transit Authority (MATA) announced Tuesday that it will resume its annual reduced fares for Shelby County School students, as classes resume on Monday, August 7.

The reduced fare, MATA officials say, is open to any student in grades K-12 attending a Shelby County School, as well as other students with proof of enrollment in any public, private, or parochial school.

Students can pay a reduced cash fare of $1.35 for a one-way trip, or purchase daily, weekly, or monthly passes, all at discounted prices.

To receive the discounted fare, students are required to present an identification card when boarding the bus, which can be purchased for $3 at the Hudson or Airways transit centers.
