Attention MCTS Freeway Flyer & UBUS Riders
Pertains to customers who Ride ONLY local streets on a Freeway Flyer Route
Effective Monday, September 29, 2014, the Milwaukee County Transit System will be implementing a new policy that will require any person riding on a Freeway Flyer route – even just a short segment of the route- to pay the Freeway Flyer fare.
This will NOT affect most riders and fares are NOT changing. Riders will still pay with a valid pass (i.e. CVP, U-PASS), Weekly/Monthly pass with cash premium, or the cash fare of $3.25 adult/$1.60 reduced.
In the past, MCTS was able to accommodate riders who rode Freeway Flyers for just a short distance by charging them a regular local fare ($2.25 adult cash or $1.1.0 reduced). MCTS will no longer be able to provide this service.
We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation as we implement this policy. Note: The $0.35 zone fare still applies for passengers who board or alight Route 79 in Waukesha County.
Effective Wednesday, April 23, 2014, due to construction on 76th Street between Kearny Street and National Avenue, several Route 44 and 44U stops will be temporarily discontinued. The following stops will not be served during this time:
70th and Kearny Streets
76th and Kearny Streets
76th Street and Greenfield Avenue

Effective Monday, April 14, 2014, Routes 44 and 44U westbound ONLY will detour due to the closure of the 76th Street bridge over I-94 in conjunction with the Zoo Interchange Project. Detour routing is as follows:
From westbound I-94:
Exit at 68th Street, west on O’Connor Street to 70th Street, south on 70th Street to Main Street, west to 76th Street to regular route.
During this time westbound Routes 44 and 44U will miss two stops. One stop at 73rd and O’Connor Streets and one stop at 76th and O’Connor Streets. Passengers can use alternate stops at 69th and O’Connor Streets or at 70th and Main Streets.
Effective Tuesday, September 3, 2013 the regular bus stop at State Fair park-ride lot will be removed due to construction. During this time, please board buses near the southwest corner of 76th Street and Main/Adler Street (near southeast corner of the lot).
