Transit-Oriented Development

Not Just A Myth

In the coming week, I’ll be taking a close look at transit issues. The issues facing transit systems (both existing and potential) in Milwaukee (and the surrounding counties) are rather complex, and I’ll attempt to break every issue down as best as I can.

Before diving in to local issues, it’ll be best to understand what’s going on elsewhere. Other cities have seen significant transit-orientad development take place. The transit blog, The Overhead Wire, has a great blog post illustrating this very fact.

Starting with Arlington, Virgina (pictured below), The Overhead Wire blog post features a lot of good examples (with photos) of transit-oriented development.

Is there potential for this kind of growth in Milwaukee? I’ll examine this and more in the coming week.

    Please provide us with as many facts about the transit issues facing Milwaukee, as well as the likelyhood that a light-rail (or something similar) will one day exist in Milwaukee.

    I’d move back to Milwaukee fast if the city had a more reliable, and modern transit system. Buses just do not cut it…

    You bet there’s potential! Excited to see what you come up with.

    I’m looking forward to the series Jeramey! This is an important issue going on in Milwaukee that many citizens do not fully inform themselves on.
