Update on COVID-19 | View Alert

MCTS has suspended fare collection. Riders must now enter and exit the bus through the back door only, unless ADA access is needed. Remember, only ride the bus if you HAVE to. Read more here.



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 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)

Please note you can leave a comment directly on the map by clicking the blue "ADD A COMMENT" button in the upper right hand corner of the screen. You can also submit feedback by filling out this form.


  • Pink - High Frequency (15 routes)
  • Blue - Local Routes (16 routes)
  • Green - Daytime Routes (service runs 6 a.m. -7 p.m.) (4 routes)
