Below are a few updates, including an upcoming Community Listening Session and articles related to the 2013 Milwaukee County Budget process.  There were no major changes for MCTS in the 2013 budget, and no changes in service levels or increases in passenger fares are anticipated.  However, 2014 is when the source of stopgap funding found in 2011 (CMAQ) will run out.  We anticipate that 2013 will be a key turning point so stay tuned!
