Bus Route Named in Honor of (Soon-to-Be) MVP Christian Yelich

Route 22 will be called the Yelich Line.

Milwaukee, WI – MCTS is temporarily renaming a bus route after Milwaukee Brewers star outfielder Christian Yelich.

Starting Thursday, November 8th, and running through Thursday, November 15th when Yelich is named the MVP (don’t @ us, Arenado and Baez), the Route 22 will be called the Yelich Line.

The Route 22, which runs on Center Street between UWM and 60th Street, was picked because 22 is Yelich’s uniform number. Also, we didn’t have a route named ‘Awesome’ or ‘Incredible’ to temporarily rename.

Buses on the route will show Yelich Line on the front display leading up to the MVP announcement. After he is named MVP (seriously, Cubs and Rockies fans, don’t), all 400 buses in the MCTS fleet will display a special message in Yelich’s honor.
