Bus Route Renamed in Honor of (Soon-to-Be) MVP Christian Yelich


Milwaukee, WI - MCTS is temporarily renaming a bus route after Milwaukee Brewers star outfielder Christian Yelich.

Starting Thursday, November 8th, and running through Thursday, November 15th, when Yelich is named the MVP (don’t @ us, Arenado and Baez), Route 22 will be called the Yelich Line

Route 22, which runs on Center Street between UWM and 60th Street, was picked because 22 is Yelich’s uniform number. Also, we didn’t have a route named ‘Awesome’ or ‘Incredible’ to temporarily rename.

Buses on the route will show Yelich Line on the front display leading up to the MVP announcement. After he is named MVP (seriously, Cubs and Rockies fans, don’t), all 400+ buses in the MCTS fleet will display a special message in Yelich’s honor.

Update: We decided that if our original tweet got 2,222 retweets (including one from Christian Yelich himself), we would rename Route 22 to the Yelich Line for the entire 2019 Brewers season. Yelich retweeted our post a few hours later, saying, “Let’s ride in style next year.” Thousands of others also got in on the action. That means fans can look for the Yelich Line beginning next Spring!
