INVESTING IN TRANSPORTATION EQUITY
The 27th Street corridor is home to communities composed of diverse races, incomes and abilities who depend on transit service. Of the 118,000 people who live within a half mile of the route, there are:
73% people of color
1 in 5 households without a car
26% families in poverty
Milwaukee County’s investment in enhanced transit along or near 27th Street will significantly improve access to jobs, healthcare, education, social activities and other destinations for current transit riders and attract new riders. This effort supports Milwaukee County’s commitment to racial equity and social justice. Learn more at the Milwaukee County Office of Equity.
Milwaukee County is committed to advancing racial equity, the just and fair inclusion of people of color in a society where all people can participate, prosper and reach their full human potential.
