Rally to urge Legislators to Get RTA Moving Now!

Job connections and job creation must be a top priority and they rely on a vibrant regional transit network and an RTA.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving we…

  • Are thankful for our local bus systems who often get blamed when government fails us
  • Are thankful for workers who make our city strong, even as they tolerate service cuts and fare increases
  • Are thankful for students who ride our buses, and believe they will take them to school every day
  • Are thankful for employers who are not afraid to hire people from all over even if they do not drive
  • Are thankful for elected officials who understand we need buses and they are integral to our economic health

And NEXT YEAR:  We want to be thankful for the State legislators who “got it” in time to save our County buses.  JOIN US – this Saturday, December 5th at 1:00PM and rally for transit.

We must create the environment where the economy and jobs can grow: transit is a necessity and an RTA is needed to support a good transit network.

Transit cuts are imminent and will hurt businesses, workers, and tax payers when people can’t get to work, school, shopping, healthcare. Unemployment hurts everyone. We must have adequate, dedicated transit funding now.

Transit dependent people rely on transit services as their lifeline.

Urgency – dedicated funding for buses is needed now. We must be ready by January to advance RTA legislation. We cannot afford to wait and watch our bus system crumble and important infrastructure investments pass us by.

SE WI is together on the need for an RTA. Property tax relief is crucial for Milwaukee.
