Transit aids to Milwaukee and Madison provide needed mobility
Gov. Tony Evers’ plan supports job seekers, community health, families
Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Secretary-designee Craig Thompson today praised Governor Tony Evers’ use of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to support transit in Milwaukee and Madison, a key to help families meet basic needs.
“The number one barrier for job seekers is often transportation; making sure people have a way to get to work opens doors for workers and strengthens our communities. Healthy transit systems mean stronger neighborhoods, greater equity, and more economic opportunities.”
The funding includes more than $5.2 million for the city of Madison and more than $19.7 million for Milwaukee County.
