Waukesha County Opts Out Of Regional Transit; Milwaukee Should Do The Same With Water

Waukesha County Opts Out Of Regional Transit; Milwaukee Should Do The Same With Water

James Rowen – The Political Environment

Well, it’s official; The Waukesha County Board of Supervisors has decided – – unanimously – – to decline joining a regional transit authority.

This is not the first time that Waukesha County has blocked transit links with Milwaukee: it was the Waukesha County Board that voted down a regional transportation recommendation that included major highway improvements and light rail connections with Milwaukee.
And in late 2007, Waukesha County chose not to continue fundiung a direct bus line connecting the two counties – – Route #9.
