UPDATED APRIL 21, 2014! Please read carefully!
Effective Saturday, April 12, 2014 due to construction associated with the Zoo Interchange Project, a portion of 76th Street between Bluemound Road and Main Street closed and Route 76 buses (ONLY the 76th Street branch) were detoured.
Effective Wednesday, April 23, 2014, due to an additional project along 76th Street between Main Street and National Avenue, Route 76 - 76th Street buses will follow Route 76 - 68th/70th Street bus routing between Bluemound Road and National Avenue.
Passengers will need to board the Route 76 at comparable stops located as follows:
Along 68th Street between Bluemound Road and 0’Connor Street (north of I-94)
Along 70th Street between Kearny Street and National Avenue (south of I-94)
Passengers boarding between Bluemound Road and National Avenue and traveling southbound should watch destination signs carefully as Route 76 – 68th/70th Street AND Route 76 - 76th Street buses will now be using the same stops.
Also during this time, pedestrians needing to travel over I-94 will not be required to pay a fare when boarding any Route 76 bus between Bluemound Road and Main Street. This is to help ensure public safety, accessibility and mobility during the Zoo Interchange Project and is sponsored by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. Please note if a transfer is requested the passenger must pay full fare.
Please note: The detoured portion south of Main Street on 76th Street is a separate construction project, so it is NOT included in the “Free Ride” zone.
