ATTENTION PASSENGERS OF ROUTES 40U, 42U, 44U & 49U!
The following is the UBUS service schedule during exams for the 2015 spring semester. Please read carefully:
At the end of the semester for UWM the 40U, 44U and 49U will run regular service through Thursday, May 7, 2015 and an exam schedule starting Friday, May 8, 2015 through Friday, May 15, 2015.

42U will continue regular service through Thursday, May 21, 2015.
There will be no UBUS service after Thursday May 21, 2015 until the fall 2015 semester.
Reminder: UBUSes do NOT operate during weekends.
This is a reminder to all students that the U-PASS program ends for the semester on May 22nd. This date will be the last day you will receive unlimited bus service from MCTS unless you enroll in summer classes.
You can still choose to use your U-PASS as a regular M•CARD all summer long to travel to work, restaurants and events. Just load it with a 1-, 7- or a 31-day pass or Stored Value of any amount between $2 and $50 up to $100. The M•CARD offers a discounted rate compared to paying cash ($1.75 vs $2.25). Graduating students and those not returning next year can hold on to their cards to load value on them as well.
Returning students should hold onto their M•CARD to use in the fall semester when the U-PASS program starts up again. Important Note - if you lose your pass you will need to buy a new one in the fall.
If you have any questions please call or email your school’s U-PASS Office.
Attention College Student U-PASS Smart Card Holders:
Your U-PASS smart card provides unlimited bus ridership during the current semester. The pass is for YOUR use only. You are required to show your college ID to the bus driver after touching your pass to the farebox. Selling of your U-PASS to another person is in violation of the agreement you’ve made with your college. If your college finds you are in violation of this agreement, strict disciplinary action will be taken.
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.
