Individuals across Milwaukee County have relied on the Milwaukee County Transit System as their main source of transportation. With construction taking place all across the county, driving has become a serious headache for some. The four-year reconstruction project of the Zoo Interchange has left many drivers in a commuter’s obstacle course as they figure out the best way to avoid traffic hassles.
These new routes will connect individuals to jobs and those who enjoy shopping to nearby malls. Routes 6 and 279 were made possible because of a settlement agreement between representatives from the Milwaukee Inner-City Congregation Allied for Hope and Black Health Coalition of Wisconsin with the State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation. The new routes are as follows:
