Starting Sunday, August 27th, MCTS will implement changes to transit service for the Fall season. These adjustments were made to improve the reliability of service (based on feedback from riders and bus drivers) and increase the frequency of service within available resources.

Fall Changes (August 27, 2023)

Our service goals for the Fall were as follows:

  • To improve reliability on the CONNECT 1 Bus Rapid Transit Line.

  • To adjust schedules based on feedback from bus operators.

  • To modify schedules due to road construction.

  • To improve the frequency of service.


   Improving Reliability on the CONNECT 1 Bus Rapid Transit Line


Additional time will be added to the schedule to help bus drivers run on time and provide customers with more accurate real-time schedule information. CONNECT 1 BRT buses will continue to arrive at the same frequency of service as they do today. 

   Improving Reliability Based on Feedback from Bus Operators and Riders


The following schedules have been adjusted based on feedback from bus drivers and riders.

Routes 14, 24, 30, 33, 51, 80 & RedLine.

   Routes with Continued Detours 

The following routes will continue to be detoured due to major road construction during the Fall.

CONNECT 1 BRT and Routes 12 & 57.

   Improving the Frequency of Service

The frequency of service will be improved on the following routes based on a review of ridership and service levels:

Route 33: Adjusted afternoon trip times leaving downtown Milwaukee to accommodate workers on weekdays.

Route 51: Improved frequency of service to 26 min. between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m.

Route 57: Improved frequency of service to every 28 min. on Saturday morning.

Route 80: Improved frequency of service to every 21 minutes between 5:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. to MATC Oak Creek and to every 21-25 minutes between 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. to the Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport.

RedLine: Improved frequency of service to every 12 minutes during the midday.
