ABOUT CONNECT 2

ENHANCING TRANSIT ALONG 27TH STREET

INVESTING IN ACCESS AND RACIAL EQUITY

To meet the community’s modern mobility needs, the Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) has begun the environmental review and design process to deploy bus rapid transit (BRT) service along the 27th Street corridor, the second route planned for Milwaukee County’s newest BRT system, CONNECT.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

By bringing BRT to the 27th Street corridor, the Milwaukee North-South Transit Enhancement project will enhance service for the current MCTS PurpleLine riders and intersect with CONNECT (East-West BRT), the first route in the CONNECT BRT system. The project would increase frequency, add amenities and serve more community members along the 27th Street corridor.

This project is one way Milwaukee County is keeping the commitment to achieving racial equity and social justice made in 2019 when the County resolved to advocate for policies that improve health in communities of color. The project will improve access to convenient transportation for jobs, education, healthcare, grocery stores and other essential services—each with a positive impact to health and economic opportunity.
