Transit Development Plan
At the request of the City of Waukesha and Waukesha County, the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (SEWRPC) prepared a short-range transit development plan (TDP). The TDP includes both Waukesha Metro Transit and Waukesha County Transit and evaluated the current systems and analyzed potential transit service recommendations to meet the needs of the community. The plan also includes a set of recommended service changes for each transit system.
Commission staff prepared the plan in a joint effort with the staffs of the City of Waukesha and Waukesha County. The plan was guided by an Advisory Committee including representatives from the City and County, local municipalities, and interested educational and business groups and non-profit organizations. After careful study and evaluation, on November 29, 2022, the Advisory Committee approved the transit service recommendations for the City and County of Waukesha that are included in this plan. Subsequently, the City of Waukesha adopted the Transit Development Plan on December 20, 2022, and the Waukesha County Public Works Committee received a report on the final plan on January 12, 2023. On June 14, 2023, SEWRPC amended VISION 2050 to incorporate the recommendations within the Waukesha Area Transit Development Plan.
