Recommended System Map


As part of the MCTS NEXT process, we spent nearly a year examining and evaluating every route and bus stop across our service area to identify opportunities for improvements, added efficiency and faster service.

This study helped us create two proposed route maps. Based on feedback gathered from thousands of people and groups in Milwaukee County, we have now developed a Recommended System Map that is currently available for final public comment. Once finalized, it will be submitted to the Milwaukee County Board for consideration.

The Recommended System includes:

  • 60% High Frequency Service (buses come every 15 minutes or better)
  • 40% Low Frequency Service (buses come every 20 to 40 minutes)

  • Pink - High Frequency (15 routes)
