MCTS officials look into developing bus route from Milwaukee to Foxconn

MILWAUKEE — Officials with the Milwaukee County Transit System are looking into developing a bus route from Milwaukee to the Foxconn facility in Racine County.

Milwaukee County Board Chairman Theo Lipscomb submitted a proposal Wednesday, July 11 to direct several county agencies to begin discussions with Racine County, the state and Foxconn.

A past analysis of the potential route found more than 1,300 workers could use it on a daily basis.

Construction of the Foxconn facility began in June, and it is scheduled to open in 2020.
