If you haven't heard by now, Milwaukee County Transit System is currently on a work-stoppage that was authorized by members of the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 998 and will be out of service for 72 hours. Service at this point is expected to be restored on Saturday.
This means hard times for many Milwaukeeans who use public transportation every single day to get to work, appointments, day care and so much more.
When I feel a bit down about our fair city – and there is plenty to be down about – things like this Reddit thread give me hope. Milwaukeeans offering to help other Milwaukeeans!
If you are in need for a ride somewhere over the next few days – or can offer one up – please join in the thread conversation.
Carolynn Buser is one of Milwaukee's loudest and most adamant cheerleaders (don't dare try to disagree). She's the primary voice behind much of OnMilwaukee's social media and content direction, and apologizes in advance if she can be too sarcastic at times.
What else? She's a wine lover, closet trashy novel reader, beauty supplies addict and devourer of cheese (shocker for a Wisconsin born and bred girl, right?). She's also a bit of a foodie, which is a word most of you hate, we know. She works as hard as she plays - and that includes in the gym! So, you've probably seen her at one of the area's newest restaurant openings (and yes, she will share her opinions good or bad) or enjoying a cold one at a local pub.
All in all, Carolynn's a believer in positive thinking and will do her best to smack down your negative ones while writing about her city, her loves, quests and more.
