Who is MTS?

Milwaukee Transport Services, Incorporated (MTS) is a private not-for-profit corporation, contracted by Milwaukee County since 1975 to manage and operate the Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS), in conjunction with the Milwaukee County Board and the Milwaukee County Department of Transportation. All employees who work at the transit system are employees of MTS not Milwaukee County. Mike Giugno is the President of MTS and has more than 32 years of transit experience.

Under MTS management, the highest portion of every dollar goes directly into providing services, not paying management expenses.  MTS has the lowest percentage of general and administrative expenses of any of our peer systems, with nearly 90 percent of the cost going directly to the provision of services. MTS’s “G&A” expense was 10.9 percent. The average for our peer systems was 17.5 percent, with one system more than double our rate at 23.2 percent.
