UWM Focuses on Transportation and Parking Issues

With changes to the main campus, emergent satellite campuses, more housing options, and a dynamic student body, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee continues to face transportation challenges for the 30,000+ people a day it serves. Parking, bus service, and even bicycle parking are among the more challenging issues faced daily by students, staff, and faculty. 

In Fall 2013, UWM hired an interdisciplinary transportation consultant team to kick-off a comprehensive parking and transportation study. This effort is looking closely at all of the transportation needs of UWM, from all perspectives, and will include reviews of:

  • Parking location, pricing and eligibility
  • Shuttle services - who they serve and how well
  • Bicycling - how do we build off recent campus successes
  • MCTS - how can it work better for UWM
  • Alternative Transportation - how do we take advantage of all options
The study helping to understand how transportation systems work today, gain input from students, faculty, and staff on ideas for improvements, and then make recommendations for how UWM can improve transit, facilities for cyclists and walkers, and best manage parking.

Please monitor www.uwmmoves.wordpress.com for updates on event schedules, leaving your feedback, and reading that of others.
