Service Alerts for Route 44
  • DATE: Effective 12/9/2014    
    DURATION: Until further notice
    AFFECTED AREA: I-94 Westbound at 68th Street                            
    Due to I-94 Westbound lanes being reduced to two lanes for the Zoo Interchange Core Project at 68th Street, the Route 44 PM Flyer Trips may experience heavy traffic delays. If the freeway is backed up the detour is as follows: 

    Route 44 Westbound PM Flyers
        •    Continue west on Wisconsin Ave at 17th Street
        •    South (left) on 76th Street to regular route
  • We have been notified that the 76th Street Bridge construction (between Main and Greenfield) should be completed in the first week of December.

    Since we have not been given a specific date and to reduce confusion, Routes 44, 44U & 76 will return to regular routing on Saturday, December 6, 2014 at pull out.

    For your convenience, signs will be posted at affected temporary stops.

    Thank you for riding the bus.
  • 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.
