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.
Effective Monday, November 4th, 2013, (note this effective date may change if the ramp closures date changes - check back for updates) work in conjunction with the I-794 Lake Freeway / Hoan Bridge Project will affect several Freeway Flyers, however no bus stops will be affected. The I-794 East exit to Lincoln Memorial Drive will close as well as the Lincoln Memorial Drive southbound entrance ramp to I-794 East (Southbound) until further notice. Routes 40, 43, 44U, 46 and 48 will most likely experience delays. Additionally, Routes 44U and 48 will use detour routing during this time, however no bus stops will be affected.
We appreciate your patience during this time and we will monitor buses throughout this project and update passengers with any new information as it becomes available.
