Use Michigan to Van Buren, North on Van Buren to Wisconsin, West on Wisconsin and regular route.
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.
July 13th: Beginning August 28, 2016, several routes will see some changes through Downtown Milwaukee because of the closure and demolition of the Transit Center. Check back here for more specific information on stops impacted and new routing.
