Lake Effect Weekend: End of the JobLines Series Roundup, Bubbler Talk

Aug 24, 2019

This weekend on Lake Effect

The last JobLines bus route ends service into Waukesha County on Saturday. We take a look at why the JobLines were created, why they’re ending, and what the future holds for mass transit in the area. We hear about the historical challenges our public transit has faced when trying to connect different counties. We speak to people who depend on the JobLines to get to and from work, hear from a Waukesha County supervisor on why he thinks the JobLines didn’t work. And we discuss possible solutions to the last mile problem. Plus, we have the latest edition of Bubbler Talk

Guests:

  • Joy Powers, executive producer, "End of the JobLines" series
  • Rob Henken, president, Wisconsin Policy Forum
  • Route 57 Riders feature
  • Paul Decker, Waukesha County Supervisor and co-chair of the Regional Transit Leadership Council
  • Kevin Muhs, executive director, Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission
