MCTS Launches Another Upgrade for Riders
1-Day Pass Available to Buy on the Bus Beginning Sunday
MILWAUKEE – Passengers using the Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) have another new technology update to make riding easier. Beginning Sunday, November 15th riders with an M•CARD can buy a 1-Day Pass on the bus. In the past, riders had to go to a store to have the pass put on their card.
“This is the latest upgrade we have put into place to making riding easier and more convenient,” said County Executive Chris Abele. “From the launch of the M•CARD and Real-Time Information last year, to M•CARD Online this summer and now the 1-Day Pass, we’re continuing to improve MCTS every day.”
A 1-Day Pass costs $5 if paying with cash or only $4 if the rider uses Stored Cash Value on their M•CARD. Buying the 1-Day Pass on the bus is easy and safe; passengers simply:
- Tell the driver they’d like to buy a 1-Day Pass.
- The driver selects 1-Day Pass and asks the passenger to pay with cash or Stored Cash Value.
- The passenger touches their M•CARD on the farebox and the pass is loaded onto the card for unlimited riding until the end of service that day (4:59am the following day).
Press Releases by Milwaukee County Transit System
Every bus in the MCTS fleet will have a seat reserved in honor of Rosa Parks.
Passengers should expect service delays, especially through the city of Milwaukee.
“I was treated with the utmost respect, and really enjoyed riding the city bus,” said national travel writer John Morris.
The Transit Center property was sold by Milwaukee County to developer Rick Barrett who is redeveloping the land into The Couture project.
The sale and demolition of the Downtown Transit Center means changes for several MCTS routes that run through Downtown Milwaukee.
