The City of Milwaukee is offering two new ways for residents to support transit initiatives in Milwaukee.  First the City of Milwaukee has rolled out an online petition and are asking residents to sign it if you agree with the four points laid out below:

  1. The Connector plan should enhance and expand existing public transit service in Milwaukee.
  2. Transit routes that are fixed in place are more likely to spur significant development. Thus, the Connector plan should include fixed transit.
  3. The design of the Connector plan should maximize the amount of federal transit investment attracted to Milwaukee.
  4. The Connector plan should be viewed as a significant, substantial beginning to major transit improvements in Milwaukee — with the expectation that our community will build upon these improvements over time.

Additionally the Milwaukee Connector study group will be holding a series of meetings to allow residents to voice their opinion.   The open houses will be held from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on the following dates:
