Improving Transit – Another Chance to Weigh In
Bus Rapid Transit Meeting April 9th at Mitchell Street Library
Milwaukee, WI – Milwaukee County and MCTS are continuing to gather public input on the planned nine-mile, regional, Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) route. The route will connect thousands of riders every day to major employment, education and recreation destinations through downtown Milwaukee, Milwaukee’s Near West Side, Marquette University, Wauwatosa and the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center.
The project is expected to spark economic development across the corridor and reduce congestion for riders and drivers through the area.
The public is being asked to give feedback on the location of the proposed dedicated lanes as well as the locations and design of the planned stations.
When: Monday, April 9, 2018
Time: 4 – 6 p.m.
Where: Mitchell Street Library, Community Room (1st Floor)
906 W. Historic Mitchell Street, Milwaukee, WI
Getting There: The meeting is accessible via transit and offers free parking. Plan your trip on the new Ride MCTS app or at RideMCTS.com
