Milwaukee County

At the request of Milwaukee County, the Commission staff completed a short-range, 5-year transit development plan for the Milwaukee County Transit System in 2010. The plan was prepared under the guidance of the Milwaukee County Transit Development Plan Advisory Committee. Staff from the Milwaukee County Transit System and the Milwaukee County Department of Transportation also contributed to the preparation of the plan. The recommended plan was approved by the Advisory Committee on October 11, 2010 and the final study report (SEWRPC Community Assistance Planning Report No. 279, "Milwaukee County Transit System Development Plan: 2011-2015") has been published. A summary of the plan recommendations can be found is in these documents:

  • Presentation on the development of the plan and the final plan recommendations 
  • Brochure summarizing the final plan

 

Advisory Committee


The Milwaukee County Transit System development plan has been developed under the guidance of the Milwaukee County Transit System Development Plan Advisory Committee, whose members have been appointed by the Milwaukee County Executive. The Advisory Committee, after careful study and evaluation, recommended the final plan of operating and capital improvements for the Milwaukee County Transit System which should be implemented from over a five-year period. The Advisory Committee provided guidance to the technical staffs in the preparation of this plan, and served to involve concerned and affected public officials and citizen leaders more directly and actively in the design and evaluation of the plan’s transit improvement and funding proposals. The materials related to the meetings of the Advisory Committee can be accessed below:

 

Study Newsletters and Brochures


Two newsletters were prepared for the Milwaukee County Transit System Development Plan to provide an overview of the work completed on the plan, identify some of the key findings to date, and describe the alternative transit service improvement plans. In addition, two short brochures were also prepared summarizing the alternative transit service improvement plans and the Milwaukee County Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) proposal. The newsletters and brochures may be found below:

Public Involvement


Throughout the preparation of the Milwaukee County Transit System development plan, SEWRPC sought the active participation of public elected and appointed officials, business and civic leaders, environmental and community groups, and concerned and interested citizens and parties. The proposed transit service improvements and the final recommended transit system development plan reflected the input received from elected officials and the general public.

  • Summary of public informational meetings held in February and March 2007 to present information on the work completed to that point on the transit development plan
  • Summary of public informational meetings held on January 20, 21, and 22, 2009, to present information on the alternative transit service improvement plans developed by SEWRPC and transit system staffs and approved by the Milwaukee County Transit System Development Plan Advisory Committee, along with information on a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project in the Fond Du Lac-National Corridor under development by Milwaukee County.
