Connecting Milwaukee workers to Foxconn plant on agenda for tomorrow

On Wednesday, September 26, the Public Transportation, Utilities and Waterways Review Board will receive an update on possible expansion of transit connecting Milwaukee workers to the upcoming Foxconn facility in Racine County. The Board is continuing to review rail and bus opportunities including the proposed expanded Amtrak service line and the proposed expanded Milwaukee County bus line.

Representatives from Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission will join the board as it considers the costs, travel times and frequency of services to-and-from Foxconn, according to Board Chairman Robert J. Bauman.

Alderman Bauman is leading the city’s exploration of connecting low-income Milwaukee residents with the Foxconn facility, conducting multiple hearings on this issue.

“It’s unconscionable that the State of Wisconsin would provide this private company a subsidy to the tune of $4.5 billion yet not invest one penny to improve transitoptions for Milwaukee residents to Foxconn plant,” said Alderman Bauman.

The Public Transportation, Utilities and Waterways Review Board meeting tomorrow (Wednesday, September 26) is at 10 a.m. in room 301-B at City Hall, 200 E. Wells St. The meeting will be televised live on the City Channel (Channel 25 on Spectrum Cable and on AT&T U-Verse Channel 99) and will be carried live atwww.milwaukee.gov/channel25.
