Milwaukee County Being Shown Up By Stevens Point

Posted by Chris Liebenthal on August 26, 2009

New post up at Milwaukee County First.

Stevens Point are years ahead of Milwaukee County regarding mass transit. They had bike racks seven years ago. They had Freedom Passes. Now, they are expanding late night transit.

Here, in Milwaukee County, they are looking at slashing routes, decreasing services at others, and increasing fares by starting to charge for transfers.

Stevens Point also happens to be a growing city with new development and new businesses opening regularly. Milwaukee County’s economy is declining and businesses are leaving.

The biggest difference is that Stevens Point has forward thinking leaders and we have Scott Walker.
