Freeways vs. Transit Plus, and another transit story

The JS editorial board is on record supporting the $25 million interchange for the ill-conceived Pabst Farms project.

How does the editorial board feel about proposed cuts to TransitPlus, a crucial service that provides transportation to disabled people? Don't know -- JS hasn't said. The paper's entire treatment of the TransitPlus issue hasn't gone beyond a few sentences in the news columns.

Pabst Farms is in Waukesha County; the people dependent on TransitPlus are in Milwaukee County. Those facts and the paper's differing treatment of them are not just a coincidence.

Here, by the way, is a map showing where TransitPlus services would be eliminated in significant portions of the outlying parts of the county.

And below, another transit story, the seventh in a series. All can be found here.
