WISCONSIN NEWS ROUND-UP: Mass transit riding up except in Wisconsin
The number of Americans riding mass transit is the highest since 1956, but Wisconsin is bucking that trend. The American Public Transportation Association said riders nationally took almost ten-point-seven billion trips on public buses, trains, and subways last year. That's up one-percent from 2012. Statewide figures for Wisconsin were not part of the report, but it did say that Milwaukee County buses attracted two-percent fewer riders last year, for a total of 43-million.
