Three years ago, the Milwaukee County Transit System JobLines, routes 6 and 61, were created to connect those in our hardest-hit urban neighborhoods to a multitude of opportunities outside the city. Moms, dads, young people just getting a start in life had newfound access to available jobs in retail, manufacturing and more – as well as internships, apprenticeships and community colleges that would create a career path.
Today, these two bus routes are a lifeline for so many in our community, and are experiencing record ridership. But at the close of 2018, funding for the project will be exhausted, and it could be the end of the line for the JobLines!
Together, we can keep the JobLines rolling!
JobLines—Routes 6 and 61—is a joint initiative among MCTS, BHCW (Black Health Coalition of Wisconsin) and MICAH (Milwaukee Inner-city Congregations Allied for Hope) connecting Milwaukee residents with suburban job opportunities.
Every day, nearly 1,000 riders use JobLines to take them from the heart of Milwaukee to Waukesha and Washington Counties for jobs they can depend on. Are you looking for a better paying job? Transportation you can count on? Don’t give up.
