Bus route 61 in Milwaukee, Wisc., cuts through political lines in a hotly contested swing state. It travels from liberal Milwaukee through to Waukesha County, one of the most conservative in the state.
The bus route was first established to help residents in central city neighborhoods get jobs, mainly retail positions in the suburbs. For Breanna Jordan , a 24-year-old living in Milwaukee, her livelihood depends on bus route 61. She works at a Walmart in Menomonee Falls, an hour and a half bus ride each way.
