To be the preferred transportation choice through service excellence and innovation.

Values:

Respect, Integrity, Excellence, Equity, Collaboration, Innovation

The Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) is innovating the way people across southeast Wisconsin get to work, school, medical appointments, entertainment and anywhere else they need to go. With a fleet of 370 clean-diesel buses and a dedicated team of 1,100 drivers, mechanics and administrative staff, MCTS provides nearly 29 million rides each year and generates a massive economic impact for the region.

Known around the world for the award-winning MCTS Excellence program, MCTS is proud to offer outstanding customer service and state-of-the-art features including clean-diesel buses, Real-Time tracking information, the Ride MCTS app, and the reusable smart card M•CARD. We’re continually working to improve rider experience, connectivity, efficiency and sustainability, and we have some exciting things on the horizon!

What’s Next? MCTS NEXT

Faster Service | More Connections | Increased Accessibility

MCTS NEXT creates more high-frequency bus routes to help quickly connect people to work, school and where they need to go. With re-designed routes, we’re able to make transit easier to use, more accessible, more affordable to sustain and quicker to ride.

What’s Down the Road? The East-West Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)

Electric Buses | Reliable Travel Times | Further Connection

The East-West Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) route will connect riders with employment, education and recreation in downtown Milwaukee, Milwaukee’s Near West Side, Marquette University, Wauwatosa and the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center. With more than 30 stations, BRT will feature reliable transport every 10 minutes during peak times and serve an average of 9,500 weekday riders by 2035. BRT is cost-effective, efficient, and is proven to increase transit use with improved service frequencies, travel time and reliability and will spark millions of dollars in economic development.

Additional Programs

With programs like the U-PASS for college students and the Commuter Value Pass Program for our community’s workforce, MCTS is an essential contributor to the education and economic environment of Milwaukee County. By providing service to all Milwaukee Brewers home games and event service to Summerfest, Wisconsin State Fair and a variety of other lakefront festivals, MCTS is also an important piece of Milwaukee’s vibrant entertainment landscape.
