Milwaukee BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) Line Delayed Until 2022

Milwaukee County’s long planned East-West Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project is moving forward, key officials say, but expected completion has been delayed again until at least 2022.

A year ago at this time, planners working on the project were wrapping up design and engineering plans for the new project. Once those were finished they hoped to finalize a key grant agreement with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for approximately $40 million, which would cover approximately 79 percent of the $55 million project.
