rides since 2022 launch
jobs are more accessible
vehicles in the fleet
Through strong collaboration between public and private groups — Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and MobiliSE, a transportation strategy organization — a tech-forward solution launched in February 2022. Partnering with Via, the city piloted FlexRide Milwaukee, a city-to-suburbs transit network that connected the workers to the work. Since riders were all headed to jobs in the same direction, Via’s algorithm grouped them together in vehicles, creating dispatching and routing efficiencies across two large service zones.
As we look to the future of FlexRide Milwaukee, we know the demand for this type of service is there. We’re serving a critical need in our community.
