Coalition for Advancing Transit (C.A.T.) Meeting
The Coalition for Advancing Transit (C.A.T.) will hold their next meeting on Wednesday, November 18 at 9:00 am at Manpower International Headquarters in Milwaukee. Transit plays a pivotal role in our growth as a vibrant economic region and state, and our success in competing in the global marketplace. C.A.T. advocates for a permanent regional transit authority with a dedicated funding source to improve and enhance our current transit systems and create a dynamic, multimodal network in southeast Wisconsin. Without dedicated funding, existing local transit systems will face severe service reductions in 2010, continue their steep decline and important transportation system improvements will not become a reality. This is our best opportunity to gain dedicated transit funding and regional coordination. Interested in learning more getting engaged in the issue?
