Milwaukee Transit Riders' Union

The Milwaukee Transit Riders Union is a group of over 400 bus riders and other citizens (and counting) dedicated to better public transportation in the Milwaukee area. Our members are of all ages and walks of life.

The fight for good public transportation is a fight for social and economic justice, for equality in mobility, and for the dignity for all Milwaukeeans. We believe that all Milwaukeeans deserve the dignity of having easy access to jobs and social opportunities throughout our area.

Republicans fight Wisconsin high-speed rail

Superimposing ambitious rail projects on top of autosprawl is a recipe for failure. Without good urban public transit rail projects will fail. They make an easy target for anti-public-transit politicians.

Republicans fight Wisconsin high-speed rail: "But many Wisconsin Republicans this year are denouncing the new trains, using the project as a symbol to show how Democratic leaders in both state and federal government are spending money that neither can afford. “More than anything,” says Scott Walker, the Milwaukee County executive and Republican candidate for governor, “it symbolizes what people think of here when they think of runaway government spending.”"
