Murray Calloway Transit A uthority

  The Murray Calloway Transit Authority is exploring the prospect of powering its offices with solar panels.

Executive director Bjarne Hansen says the MCTA currently powers its bus stop lighting with solar panels, and has been working with the Tennessee Valley Authority and Murray Electric toward making all of its operations solar-powered.


The Murray-Calloway Transit Authority will ask the Calloway County Fiscal Court for $9,000 to help support county ridership.

The appeal to the fiscal court comes after Murray State informed the MCTA they will reduce public transportation funds. To continue the Racer Route program, MCTA Executive Director Bjarne Hansen said he'll seek funding this fall from MSU departments that heavily rely on routes and from the community.
