Milwaukee County is studying a new East-West Bus Rapid Transit system, or BRT, connecting the region's top job centers from the Lakefront in Downtown Milwaukee and the Near West Side, to the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center in Wauwatosa, and all the neighborhoods in between. Join us for the East-West BRT Open House on Wednesday, May 18th from 5-7PM to share your input and show your support for better transportation.
The East-West BRT would connect more people to more jobs and services, and could spur sustainable and inclusive economic development and job growth and create more vibrant neighborhoods — as it has is communities across the United States.
BRT is quick, convenient, reliable and affordable for drivers and non-drivers, and uses tax dollars wisely by expanding mobility and relieving local traffic without widening roads.
BRT provides travel times competitive with driving by using special features such as pre-boarding ticketing, dedicated lanes, and raised platforms to make boarding quick and accessible.
BRT would be an investment in creating the spine of a clean, safe, accessible, and sustainable transportation system in metro Milwaukee.
