Milwaukee Courier Letter to the Editor: Support County Transit

Posted in Uncategorized by SERTA on April 12, 2010

“It is important that our community know the potential risk of decreased county-wide access to transportation. “If MCTS has to make cuts, all services are on the table. This would include festival services to Wisconsin State Fair, Summerfest, Ethnic Festivals, Freeway Flyer service and potentially entire regular routes,” said MCTS. “If funding does not come through, we are looking at millions of dollars of cuts over the next year. After cutting service for the last eight years, there is no overlap in service anymore.” Unfortunately, without dedicated funding for transit, more transit services will be cut, fares will continue to increase, and 100,000 jobs will have become inaccessible by 2011.”
