Design Your Own Streetcar Route
UrbanMilwaukee would like to issue you a challenge. With the announcement that Mayor Tom Barrett with the help of Congressman David Obey and Senator Herb Kohl managed to get 60% of the $91.5 million for his streetcar vision, it’s time to think about what the final route may be.
So here’s the game.
1. Create a Google Account or use an existing one.
2. Create a route (not longer than 3 miles) using Google Maps. Don’t know how to do this? There is an introductory video.
3. Paste a link to your route in the comments of this post.
4. Wait until Wednesday afternoon, at that point we’ll put together a poll so we can vote for the best one.
Can’t wait to see what you come up with, whether it’s a line to Bay View or UWM, or perhaps a completely different loop around downtown.
