Milwaukee County Transit System


So, you say that masks are required to ride the bus, but you don't enforce it!! It's indicated everywhere! Yet, people are allowed to get on anyway! There's NO excuse for not wearing one since you have a dispenser right on the bus!! Why bother making the requirement if you don't enforce it? It's simple... no mask no ride!!
How do you expect riders to follow mask mandates when your own bus drivers DO NOT wear masks? This was taken this morning. You can see him in the rear view mirror without a mask. I got on at Morris and off at UWM.
Incase you are unaware there is a damaged shelter eastbound stop on Wisconsin and Jeffereson.
When is your guys stupid mask policy going to be over with?
Just watched a vid on Driver, Tiffany Rowsey being KIND. I don't ride your bus, I am not in your city, but I am VERY happy to see this! No reply needed, Keep Rolling with Love On Wheels like that!
when is MCTS going to fix the correct MCTS estimated arrival time on it's system ?


So does the bus rapid transit that goes to the medical center going to cut the Gold Line after they have that up and running? If so that means that it wouldn't go to hwy 100 and Bluemound anymore. That will be the death of MCTS as we know it.
QUIT HIDING TAXPAYER/BUS PASSENGERS POSTS... and now MCTS cancelled all summerfest bus service
here's another big MCTS bombshell = now
cancelling ALL SPECIAL SUMMERFEST BUS SERVICE... The managing director Dan claims that it's due to school service in september... (1) what weekend school service is he talking about ?
(2) MCTS under his orders is eliminating more bus school service routes like cutting out service to PIUS XI and completely DUMPING the route 76 that travels on south 68th street for the Hamilton High School students.

Please quit the fake MCTS ridership stats that only come from MCTS and not an independent study... and quit this illegal activity.

P.S. The big shot RAPID TRANSIT groundbreaking will eliminate 9 whole minutes from the GOLD LINE... a waste of federal taxpayer money.
Can you please tell me when the freeway flyer will be restarting service to downtown? Businesses are starting to go back to their offices now and many rely on the flyers as their transportation. There seems to be some confusion at my place of business. I didn’t think it was starting back up yet. Thank you
I want to give a shout out to each and every driver who gets close to the curb and lowers the bus so those of us with mobility issues can get on the bus safely. Thank you!!!

For Women’s History Month, MCTS Salutes Pioneers like Dyonne Todzy. She joined the company in 1975 based at our Kinnickinnic Station. On January 27, 1978, Dyonne made history as the first woman to be an MCTS platform instructor. Platform instructors teach route training, safety and customer service skills to newly hired bus operators. She was also one of among the first two women hired by MCTS as drivers.

Dyonne’s promotion opened the pathway for other women bus operators to follow her in her footsteps. Today, women make up (46%) percent of our bus operators and (33%) of our platform instructors. Dyonne was also the first woman to receive a 10-year safety award. #TBT

High gas prices are making headlines. We understand these rising costs can cause a hardship for many residents and we want you to know we’re here for you.

Right now, gas costs approximately $4 per gallon. A gallon will only get you a few miles per day by car. For that same $4, you can ride anywhere within Milwaukee County’s 242 square miles for an entire day. Let us help.


A customer shared his praise for Driver Arkillius Drane in an email last summer: “Hands down the best driver I’ve had the pleasure of riding with! This driver has always been extremely upbeat and personable every time I’ve been lucky enough to board his bus. Please give this man a raise … A+ accommodations whenever he is behind the wheel!” Way to go, Arkillius!


Next parade stop: Bluemounds ☘️☘️☘️

Love can happen anywhere…even on mass transit! Kris Wallner & Tod Wanta met onboard the Route 49, so when we found out they were getting married last spring, we knew we had to help them celebrate.

With help from one of their bridesmaids, we arranged for them to take photos on board one of our buses with the special “We Heart You!” message on the front screen. We also surprised them with a customized bus stop sign to commemorate their special day.

Please help us congratulate Kris & Tod, and wish a very happy Valentine's Day to all of our transit fans!
