Rob Henken, President of the Public Policy Forum and Senior Researcher Joe Peterangelo will provide an overview of their recent study The Last Mile: Connecting workers to places of employment. This research suggests that flexible forms of transit service – and perhaps new strategies linked to partnerships with ride-hailing companies like Lyft and Uber – could help address the region’s elusive “last mile” problem, which can arise when fixed-route transit services stop short of bringing commuters all the way to their job sites. This will be followed by a panel discussion that includes Waukesha County Board Chair Paul Decker, Cory Zetts, the executive director of Menomonee Valley Partners.
Rotary meetings are open to members, invited guests and media.
