Use Michigan to Van Buren, North on Van Buren to Wisconsin, West on Wisconsin and regular route.
Due to construction at Northwestern Mutual, the west bound stops at Cass & Wisconsin and the midblock stop on Wisconsin between Cass & Van Buren will be moved one block west for the next 2 months.

Update, July 29th: The sale and demolition of the Downtown Transit Center means changes for several MCTS routes that run through Downtown Milwaukee. The new routes will allow riders improved access to the Milwaukee Intermodal Station (Route 12) and a direct route to grocery stores, restaurants and the Lakefront for people living on the west side (Route 33). The new routing also clears up some bus congestion along Wisconsin Avenue. For maps and additional information, please click here.
