Two people have been added to the Memphis Area Transit Authority (MATA) leadership team as it prepares for new and improved mobility and transportation solutions for the region.
The organization announced the promotion of John Lancaster to chief development officer and Anthony Amos to chief compliance officer.
“MATA continues its ongoing mission to provide safe, equitable, reliable, and cost-effective public transit by connecting communities, improving mobility and stimulating economic development.
