A total of 28 changes in Memphis Area Transit Authority routes and service levels, including three new routes, take effect Sunday, April 2.

The transit authority approved the changes and additions earlier this year. They represent an estimated $500,000 worth of added service, according to MATA’s figures.

The new routes include weekday and Saturday service to the Ikea store in Cordova and making permanent weekend service to and from Shelby Farms Park and Agricenter International.

There is also a Memphis International Airport shuttle seven days a week. The shuttle will operate between the airport and the American Way Transit Center, ending service between the airport and the Airways Transit Center at Brooks Road and Airways Boulevard.

MATA will also end Saturday service to and from Northaven due to low ridership.

The remaining changes are modified trip times and a few route changes.
