Report on Shared Ride Taxi Analysis

For several years the City has been researching the possibility of implementing a shared ride taxi system in Milton. Early this year the City joined forces with the City of Janesville, City of Whitewater and UW-Whitewater (thanks to a grant from the State) to hire a firm that specializes in transportation systems to complete a comprehensive study for our communities.

Part of the study includes an analysis of shared ride taxi specifically for the City of Milton. Currently no such program exists. So, this study includes information about how to go about creating and funding an "entry-level" taxi service for the City, with possible program implementation in 2010.

The consultants will be presenting the analysis report at the Council meeting at 7:30 PM on Tuesday, Sept. 22nd. Anyone interested is welcome to attend. The meeting will be held in the lower level of the Shaw Municipal Building at 430 E. High Street. A full copy of the report is now available on the City website at, along with a copy of the presentation slides that will be used by the consultants at the meeting (
