MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

MATA consultants are discussing new possible routes to enhance travel through Midtown. One of the possible routes could extend into Overton Square.

This route would extend the trolley line down Madison and into Overton Square.

"Not only is it useful, but it just feels like Midtown, Downtown Memphis," said Memphian Rachel Halford.

Many Overton Square goers said the idea is intriguing.

"I think that would be a good midtown feel,"said Ellie Lyons.

This plan is a part of a study looking at future possibilities for the transit system, and 26 possible enhancements were mentioned. From the 26, seven were pin-pointed and are now being looked at closely.

Right now, MATA officials said nothing is set in stone, but all possibilities will be discussed at the next public meeting in the fall.
