Freeway Flyer & UBus Local Segment Policy Change

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.
