(414) 937-3250Bus Rapid Transit Design Kickoff Meetings This Week
First Opportunity to See Project Details, Station Designs and Service Renderings
Milwaukee, WI – Milwaukee County and Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) are looking to get input about the planned nine-mile, regional, Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) route. The route will connect major employment, education and recreation destinations through downtown Milwaukee, Milwaukee’s Near West Side, Marquette University, Wauwatosa and the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center.
The project is expected to reduce congestion, spark economic development and speed up travel times through the area.
The public is being asked to give feedback on the location of the proposed dedicated lanes as well as the locations and design of the planned stations. People can stop by anytime during the meetings to see renderings, route roll plots and talk with project staff.
