Fare Information


**IMPORTANT INFORMATION: As of January 1, 2017, we no longer accept paper tickets on board our buses. Paper passes and transfers were eliminated in early 2016. Riders can turn in full sheets of 10 tickets at the MCTS Administration Building (1942 N 17th Street, Milwaukee) and receive the value of the tickets on an M•CARD.**

The MCTS M•CARD is a reusable plastic smart card that provides discounted fares, replacing paper passes and tickets. Receive the same benefits you do now and more! Read below to see how it will work.


RECOMMENDED: We recommend as soon as you get your MCTS M∙CARD to write down the serial number which is located on the lower left hand side on the back of the card (starts with 05), and keep this number in a safe place. In the event your card is lost or stolen, MCTS can block your card and replace it with your remaining balance. At M∙CARD Online, you can check your card’s balance and load 1-, 7-, & 31-day passes and stored value onto your card.
