Memphis Bus Riders Union Demonstrates for Gas Tax



Members of the Memphis Bus Riders Union lined the intersection of Poplar and Cleveland on Monday afternoon, encouraging motorists to vote "yes" on the gas tax referendum approved by the Memphis City Council in August. If passed, the tax would increase the price of each gallon of gas sold in the city by one cent. That revenue — estimated to be somewhere between $3 million and $6 million — would be given to the Memphis Area Transit Authority to improve public transportation.
