Freeway Flyer Service

Catch a Milwaukee County Transit System Freeway Flyer to Summerfest’s Mid Gate from a park-ride lot where parking is free. Service begins one half-hour before and ends one half-hour after Summerfest ends. (Please keep in mind, Flyers may be slightly delayed during weekday evening rush hours) VERY IMPORTANT - park in designated spaces at the park-ride lots to ensure buses and patrols can get through the lots easily. Cars that are parked illegally could receive tickets and/or be towed by local authorities. 

Downtown Shuttle Service

Remember the Downtown Shuttle is a great way to avoid getting caught in a traffic jam. Park for less away from the fest, Shuttle in, Shuttle out and easily escape the crowds near the festival grounds. (See map).

Downtown parking information is available here.

Ozaukee County Express

Ozaukee County Express provides service from 11:30 am to 12:30 am daily, starting at the Saukville Wal-Mart (Hwy 33/Green Bay Ave.). The bus departs 13 minutes later from the Target/Home Depot (Hwy 60) in Grafton.

TIP: Need to get there by a certain time? Plan to arrive early at a Downtown Shuttle or Freeway Flyer location in order to arrive by your desired time.
