Traffic and parking are a breeze when you ride to PrideFest on the bus! Take a Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) Shuttle to Pride Fest, held June 5-7 at Henry Maier Festival Park.  Buses provide service along Wisconsin Avenue to the festival. Shuttles run roughly every 30 minutes to Pride Fest from 3:00 pm to 12:30 am on Friday, June 5; and from 11:30 am to 12:30 am on Saturday, June 6 and Sunday, June 7, 2015.

Buses operate in both directions along Wisconsin Avenue (see map). When traveling to Pride Fest, the Shuttle stops between N. 6th Street and N. Jackson Street, then proceeds directly to the Mid Gate. Stops are made at all bus stops marked with the Summerfest smile logo.

Shuttle fares are $3.00 round trip for adults or $2.50 with an MCTS M•CARD. Shuttle fare is $1.50 round trip cash or $1.25 with an M•CARD for children (6-11 years), seniors (65 years and older) and persons with disabilities with proper ID. Children under age under age 6 ride free. U-PASS (summer semester only), GO Pass, New Freedom Pass and Commuter Value Pass are accepted as full fare.

MCTS buses also serve Pride Fest with numerous regular routes in the downtown area connecting to the Shuttle. Regular MCTS fares apply for travel on local routes. Freeway Flyer service is not offered for this festival.

Customers can find additional information and suggested routing via Google Trip Planner by visiting, or by calling the 24-hour automated bus information line at 414-344-6711.

    Wow!!! Imagine that a flexible transportation system that can take people to events instead of a fixed track system that just goes around in a loop

  2. PMD says:

    You post this every single time there’s a press release about shuttle service. Time for some new material. See you at Pride Fest!

  3. AG says:

    Wow!!! Imagine a fixed transportation system that will always be there to take people to events and destinations instead of a flexible system that can disappear at any time.

    I’ll bet a developer would love to have that amenity permanently built in order to encourage them to build along that fixed system.

  4. PMD says:

    Excellent point AG. Dare to dream.

  5. Paul says:

    So now this trolley is being extended to the SummerFest grounds, Miller Park, State Fair Park or wherever an event is happening. Sounds like taxes will have to go up another $8 billion

  6. Casey says:

    An “L” Train along Canal Street connecting Miller Park and even State Fair is a great idea Paul! Connect the jobs in the valley and downtown and two of the largest entertainment venues in the region.

  7. Paul says:

    Casey, if the federal funds and private funds were willing to build a rail system that would go from Summerfest west stopping at the casino, the Domes, Miller Park, State Fair Park, and the Zoo and maybe as far as Brookfield Square, I think this would be something to look into.This would be a route that many people would use compared to a downtown loop. The flexibility of the buses we use now are working just a fraction of the costs of the proposed trolley.
