News / December 14, 2020

A project for which CTG has provided extensive service planning was awarded funding through the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Capital Investment Grant (CIG) Small Starts program in December 2020. Milwaukee County received a $40.9-million grant that paves the way for their East-West Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) to move forward. The nine-mile BRT service, the first of its kinds in the state, will offer efficient, higher frequency service featuring battery-electric buses, dedicated bus lanes, traffic signal priority, off-board fare collection, optimized stop locations, state-of-the-art platforms that allow for easy boarding, and other innovative amenities.
