Milwaukee County Launches Aira Access to Expand Accessibility for MCTS Riders
February 17th, 2020
The launch of a program that supports Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) riders who are blind or low vision with increased access to public transportation has been announced by Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele, MCTS and the Milwaukee County Office for Persons with Disabilities (OPD).
With Aira, residents and visitors can receive free, one-on-one assistance riding the bus and navigating the more than 5,000 bus stops in Milwaukee County.
“In Milwaukee County, we are driving towards equity and meeting the needs of our community, and that means building a transportation system that fully serves every rider,” said Abele. “The launch of the Aira app enables both residents and visitors with visual disabilities to live more freely and safely throughout Milwaukee County.”
