Through complimentary travel training and useful tools, the New Freedom Program helps seniors and people with disabilities ride the bus safely and independently.
Milwaukee County Transit (MCTS) staff will come out to your location (e.g., school, agency, senior citizen group, etc.) to present the Freedom on Wheels program, at no cost to your organization.
Travel Training is your ticket to transit freedom! The New Freedom team provides travel training to anyone interested in riding the bus. This service is helpful whether you have little or no experience using our system. Our travel trainers will help you to become more independent and comfortable riding the bus.
Having trouble getting where you want to go, let us help. We will explain your transportation options and connect you with our community partners. Mobility Management involves creating partnerships with transportation providers in a community or region to enhance travel options, and then developing means to effectively communicate those options to the public.
The Barrier Removal program identifies physical barriers in the public right-of-way that make it difficult to access the bus system. Providing bus shelters and benches are also included in this program designed to enhance accessibility and create a consumer friendly transit system.
