There are a couple upcoming changes in the Milwaukee County Transit System. This week, seniors and people with disabilities can get free passes. Next week, some riders will face a new charge.
If you pay cash to ride the county bus, you pay $4.50 for a round trip. Right now, county residents who are 65 or older and people with disabilities pay half the regular fare.
But even that’s unaffordable for many, according to Milwaukee County Board Chairperson Marina Dimitrijevic.
