Spring Changes 2024

Our service plan for the Spring is as follows:

  • To improve the rider’s experience by modifying routes and increasing the frequency of service based on their feedback.
  • To improve on time performance by adjusting schedules based on feedback from bus operators.
  • To modify schedules due to the start of road construction.

   Routes with Adjustments or More Frequent Service Based on Feedback from Riders

Route 30

Route 30 will begin new service on Downer Avenue and provide riders with a one bus ride between UWM, the Historic Downer Avenue shopping district, and downtown Milwaukee.

The Route 30 routing along Maryland Avenue will remain the same as it is today.

  • Downer Avenue buses will travel via the following routing:
    • Northbound To UWM - Buses will travel via Prospect Avenue to North Avenue, Lake Drive, and Downer Avenue to Kenwood & Maryland and layover next to the UWM Union.
    • Southbound Leaving UWM – Buses will circle the campus via Maryland Avenue to Edgewood Avenue, Downer Avenue, and Hartford Avenue back to Maryland Avenue. Buses will leave the campus via Maryland Avenue to Locust Street, Downer Avenue, Lake Drive, North Avenue, and west on North Avenue to Farwell Avenue.
    • Route 30 buses going to and leaving UWM will alternate between traveling on Maryland Avenue and Downer Avenue.
    • When leaving UWM, it’s important you look at the destination sign on the bus to make sure it is going where you want to go, i.e., on Maryland or on Downer.
      • If you’re traveling south of North Avenue, you can board either a Maryland or Downer bus!
    • All Route 30 buses leaving UWM will serve the southbound bus stop / shelter on Maryland Avenue just north of Kenwood Avenue (Stop ID #2379). It's next to the Lubar Entrepreneur Center AND Welcome Center.
    • In addition to the routing change, the frequency of service along Sherman Boulevard, Wisconsin Avenue and Prospect / Farwell will be improved:
      • Weekday buses will arrive every 10 min. until 6 p.m. and every 15 min. until 9 p.m.
      • Saturday buses will arrive every 12 min. until 6 p.m. and every 15 min. until 9 p.m.
      • Sunday buses will arrive every 15 min. until 7 p.m. and every 20 min. until 10 p.m.
    • The frequency of service during the daytime on Maryland Avenue and Downer Avenue will be 20 min. on weekdays, 25 min. on Saturdays, and 30 min. on Sundays.


Route 21

Route 21 service on weekends will be adjusted to only operate to North Avenue & Lake Drive / Water Tower. This change is being made as Route 30 will now serve Lake Drive and Downer Avenue to UWM on the weekend.  Buses on weekdays will continue to provide high frequency service to UWM and the entire route.


Route 92

Route 92 will begin providing new limited-service trips to Brown Deer Road and 114th St./Lauer St on the northern end.

  • This change will better serve employees that work at the nearby Coca-Cola plant on Brown Deer Road.
  • The new limited trips will travel north on 91st St., west on Brown Deer Road, south on 114th/Lauer and east on Heather to the current layover. Southbound Route 92 trips will not change.
    • A new bus stop will be added at 114th St. just south of Brown Deer Road providing a shorter walking distance to employers than today.
  • In addition, the frequency of service will be improved on weekdays and Saturdays.
    • Weekday buses will arrive every 30-35 min in the peak periods.
    • Saturday buses will arrive every 40 min. between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.


  • Route 24: 2 late night trips added to accommodate third shift workers.
  • Route 28: Improved the frequency of service to every 30 minutes on weekday peak times and to every 40 minutes on Saturday to meet ridership demand. Sunday service span will be extended to 11 p.m. instead of 9 p.m. like it is today.
  • Route 33: Improved the frequency of service in the a.m. and p.m. peaks to every 30 minutes to meet ridership patterns.
  • Route 54: Improved the frequency of service on Saturdays to every 30 minutes during peak periods to meet ridership patterns.

  Improving Reliability and Efficiency Based on Feedback from Bus Operators and Riders

The following schedules have been adjusted based on feedback from bus drivers: Routes 14 & BlueLine.

  • Route 14: The frequency of weekday service will reduced to 20 min. (from 15) during the midday to reflect ridership demand.
  • BlueLine: Schedules were adjusted to improve on time performance based on feedback from bus operators.

  • Route 15 will detour at the northern end in both directions due to construction on the Holton St. Bridge.
