Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) staff will be visiting the West Allis Senior Center, 7001 W. National Ave., on Tuesday, June 25 from 1 - 2:30 p.m. to present the Freedom on Wheels program.
Freedom on Wheels is a two-part presentation for groups of individuals that would like to learn to ride the bus.
Classroom-type setting, focusing on transportation options, acceptable fare forms, proper bus etiquette rules, safety concerns, and trip planning using the Ride MCTS website and app.
