Federal funding eyed to cover COVID-19 transit ridership drops

5 May 2020 3:14 PM | WIPTA Admin (Administrator)

The federal government’s $25 billion COVID-19 public transit aid could keep fuel flowing in the city’s shared-ride taxi and commuter bus services now struggling under the pandemic’s emergency orders.

Federal funding could also boost mass transit services to city residents needing help.

Wisconsin’s Safer at Home emergency order to curtail the spread of COVID-19 cut city public transportation ridership as businesses and schools shut down, and employees and others were encouraged to stay home.
