About this Episode

Jonah Chester of WPR and Wisconsin Watch rides along with Curative Connections, which serves folks with disabilities and the elderly, including transporting them to medical appointments and other important stops in and around Green Bay. The nonprofit is part of a fractured transportation system for Brown County’s non-drivers, Chester reports. That includes Green Bay Metro’s traditional busing and door-to-door services in the metro area. Those services will become more important as Brown County’s population, like much of Wisconsin, increasingly skews older and less mobile. But a host of challenges threaten their viability — from driver shortages to decreasing revenue. Originally published on January 5th, 2023.
