The Milwaukee County Board is holding hearings on the 2012 County Budget proposed by County Executive Chris Abele.  Maintaining public transportation services has been a key part of the debate.  We need all transit advocates to contact local elected officials and let them know how important it is to preserve transit services in 2012!

Milwaukee County Finance and Audit Committee Budget Hearing:
Monday, October 17 at 9:00a.m.

Department of Transportation and Public Works
Milwaukee County Transit/Paratransit System (transit is first on the agenda so be sure to get there early!)

ATTEND IF YOU CAN AND SPEAK OUT FOR TRANSIT!  Let us know if you do.  Held in Room 203-R, at the Milwaukee County Courthouse, 901 North 9th Street, Milwaukee  MAP

Contact your Milwaukee County Representatives!

Ask them to maintain bus service – both routes and frequency.  When service is cut, not only does this curb the independence of many individuals in our community, but it also means that people cannot get to work, school, medical appointments, shopping centers and more. Transit is the backbone of a strong local economy!  Tell them your story of why we cannot afford any cuts to transit service.

Write a Letter to the Editor

Reach out to local media and let everyone else know why you support public transportation and preserving our bus system.  Tell them your story why cuts to service and 2012 will harm our community.  Click HERE to visit our Media Outreach page for more information on how to do this.
