These guys seem to be trying to leverage the MAE "brand"
for their own benefit, while trying to trash the existing
MAEs at the same time for their own good.
They sell transit. They buy from the people that they
show as being present at their "MAE." I suspect that you
can indeed inter-connect with other entities at their

I'm guessing they didn't get permission to use the MAE
