Waukesha County Bluemound Corridor Transit Enhancement Study


About the Study

Following work completed by the Commission, at the request of the Cities of Brookfield and Waukesha, on a Bus Rapid Transit Concept Plan for the Bluemound Road Corridor , Waukesha County requested a transit enhancement study along and near Bluemound Road in Waukesha County. The study report was completed in August 2023 and provides recommendations for an incremental investment approach to implementing transit enhancements including bus rapid transit (BRT) features and pedestrian improvements along the existing Waukesha Metro Route 1 corridor. The recommended enhanced Waukesha Metro transit service will link to CONNECT 1, the Region’s first BRT line, opened in June 2023, that connects the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center to downtown Milwaukee via Bluemound Road and Wisconsin Avenue in Milwaukee County. The study was coordinated with the Waukesha Area Transit Development Plan.

Review the final study report to learn more about the study recommendations.

Please visit Waukesha Metro’s website ( for details on changes to Route 1.
