MPA LLC LUNCH & LEARN W/STEWART MCKENZIE, FTA Region 5
MPA LLC Public Transportation LUNCH & LEARN
R. Stewart McKenzie- Community Planner
Federal Transit Administration, Region 5
FOCUSING ON FTA ALTERNATIVES - BRT, Bike Share & Streetcar
The city of Milwaukee POPULATION is desperately in need of state-of-the-art Public Transportation that connects the Ridership to the hot spots of employment in neighboring counties.
African American, other People of Color and the Work Challenged Milwaukeeans are heavily dependent upon public transportation. They are mired in Enduring Concentrated Poverty but are not being connected to BRT, Bike Share, and Streetcar alternatives FOR Mobility.
Congress has convened laws and President Barack Obama has signed legislation to provide states and localities with a wide range of projects to preserve and improve the conditions and performance of surface transportation, including highway, transit, intercity bus, bicycle, and pedestrian projects.
BRT, Streetcar & Bike Share
The city of Milwaukee, City of Wauwatosa and Milwaukee County have a joint East/West BRT project on the table that has been given thumbs down; by the public involvement sessions. We will explore the realities.
The city of Milwaukee has a Milwaukee Streetcar project that excludes the major population, we will explore the funding.
The city of Milwaukee and Bublr Bike has implemented a Bike Share that has RED LINED the majority population and just added as an after-thought; we will look at the realities.
MPA LLC Lunch & Learn w/R. Stewart McKenzie, Community Planner, Federal Transit Administration, Region 5, will cover the issues of FTA relative to its mission, goals, funding, citizen participation, oversight, and accountability.
