During the past several years, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Center for Economic Development (CED) has produced a number of studies focusing on transit service and access to jobs in the Milwaukee region. In 2008, the Center authored a study that examined the impact of transit service reductions since 2001 on access to employment in the Milwaukee metro area. Our analysis determined that 1,700 employers and at least 40,000 jobs became inaccessible by transit from 2001-2007 as a result of service cuts by Milwaukee County Transit Service (MCTS) and other transit providers in the 4-county region. We followed that report with a study in 2010 examining how service reductions proposed in the MCTS budget for 2011 would affect transit service for regional employers. This report updates that study by examining the MCTS proposed budget for 2012, which also contains proposals for major service cuts.
