MCTS Next Updated Proposal:
Milwaukee County Transit System Update

The Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) is currently redesigning routes for the future of transit in Milwaukee County with the MCTS NEXT initiative

As part of the NEXT process, MCTS spent nearly a year examining and evaluating every route and bus stop across the service area to identify opportunities for improvements, added efficiency and faster service.

The updated MCTS NEXT Recommended Plan is now public. At this time, as part of the most recent recommended system map, Route 14 with service on Santa Monica Drive will continue to provide service in Whitefish Bay. A final recommended system map must still be approved by the Milwaukee County Board.

News from the Health Department:

Did you know? You may have seen a recent news story about the first child in the state of Oregon to contract Tetanus in the last 30 years. The boy in Oregon spent eight weeks in the hospital and his medical bills totaled more than $800,000. The United States has seen a 95% decline in tetanus cases and 99% in tetanus related deaths since the 1940s. This is largely due to the widespread use of the Tetanus vaccine and proper wound management. For this reason, tetanus is uncommon today, with only about 30 cases reported each year in the U.S. Nearly all of these cases occur in those who are unvaccinated.  

Children are fully vaccinated if they have received five doses of the DTaP series. The first three doses are usually given at 2, 4, and 6 months of age, the fourth dose at 15-18 months, and the final dose at 4-6 years. The CDC recommends booster doses are given every 10 years throughout the lifespan. 

Check the immunization status of your child or yourself on the Wisconsin Immunization Registry (WIR). Learn more about tetanus at
