Public transit disputes

Makes Statement

County Executive Walker and Milwaukee Mayor Barrett argue over how best to use $91.5 million in federal money for transit. Walker opposes using money for rails, instead wanting road vehicles including hybrid express buses in designated lanes. Barrett sees wisdom in road vehicles but is adamant about building a three-mile street car circuit. Walker also proposes that sales tax revenue from automobile sales be used for transit.
