Memphis Area Transit Authority center earns Silver LEED certification


The Memphis Area Transit Authority’s Airways Transit Center, 3033 Airways Blvd., has gained high marks for its environmentally-friendly design.

The U.S. Green Building Council, a Washington D.C.-based nonprofit, has given the 30,000-square-foot project a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Silver certification.

This makes it the first newly constructed, publicly funded building to gain this designation in Shelby County.

The MATA Airways Transit Center opened in November 2011 as a major focal point for local transit service in the Whitehaven area. It is also the new Greyhound terminal for Memphis, replacing the Downtown location on Union Avenue.
