MCTS Celebrates Wisconsin Bike Week 2020


MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) is excited to participate in Wisconsin Bike Week from September 12-20, 2020.

Whether you're an avid cyclist, riding for exercise or just looking for a fun way to get around, MCTS believes that buses and bicycles compliment each other perfectly. No matter how you ride, MCTS is making it easier to get around than ever before thanks to bike racks on the front of every bus in our fleet.

4 Easy Steps to Use Bike Rack

  1. Squeeze the release handle and gently lower the rack.
  2. Lift your bike onto the rack. Fit your wheels into the slots.
  3. Raise security handle by pulling lever under the bike and place over top of front tire.
  4. To unload, lower handle using lever, remove bike & raise rack if there are no other bikes using it.

Additionally, MCTS is continually working with our partners at Bublr Bikes to better connect people across Milwaukee County. Examples of our ongoing collaborations include:

  • More than 80% of Bublr stations are co-located with MCTS bus stops (See graphics below for a list of locations).
  • Bublr stations are announced via MCTS on-bus audio announcements.
  • The Buslr Pass is an integrated RFID pass that allows users to move seamlessly between MCTS and Bublr. Click here to buy one -- then just stick it on the back of your M•CARD!
  • MCTS is proud to sponsor a Bublr bike share station alongside Johnsons Park at 17th & Brown, across the street from the MCTS Administration Building.

Whether it's via bus, bike, or just a pair of walking shoes, MCTS encourages you to explore all that Milwaukee County has to offer this Summer and Fall! To learn more about Wisconsin Bike Week 2020, click here.
