Southridge Mall Will Allow Buses

1/14/12 – The corporate owner of Southridge Mall has done of reversal on plans to stop buses from dropping off and picking up passengers at mall entrances. A spokesman says no disruption of bus service at the mall is expected. That word comes just one day after Milwaukee County officials released a memo indicating the mall would require transit buses to operate off its property only starting next month. Seniors and people with disabilities were worried they would have to walk several blocks from bus stops, creating safety hazards. Though the spokesman denied the owner had threatened to ban buses, county officials confirmed that was exactly the company’s stance. The buses reportedly made too much noise.
