Wauwatosa approves Bus Rapid Transit

The Wauwatosa City Council approved the Wauwatosa segment of the bus rapid transit line between Downtown Milwaukee and the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center and Milwaukee County Research Park by a 10-5 vote at its meeting Tuesday.

The approval by Wauwatosa brings the bus rapid transit project one step closer to being constructed. The bus rapid transit line can reduce the travel time by as much as 16 minutes and offer technological, safety and quality of life improvements over the current service provided along Wisconsin Avenue and Bluemound Road.

The City of Milwaukee Common Council and Milwaukee County Board will be voting on the proposal next. We will publish updates as they become available.
