MCTS Announces New Round Trip Service to Japan

Milwaukee, WI – The Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) announced today new, non-stop daily service to Japan. The trips will begin running on Saturday, April 1st. Rates will mirror local bus fares at only $2.25 cash, $2.00 with an M•CARD or $2.00 using the Ride MCTS app.

“For far too long, Mitchell International Airport has cornered the market on flying, but that is all about to change,” said Orville Wright, the head of the newly-created MCTS Aeronautics Division. “Besides physics, nothing says we can’t fly a bus to the other side of the globe.”

Each MCTS bus has seating for 40 people, meaning everyone will travel in first class.

If service to Japan meets expected demand, other flights will be added in the future to Australia, Brazil and the moon.
