MILWAUKEE (October 6, 2021) — The Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) has a special invitation for senior citizens or anyone who has a relative, friend, or neighbor who’s looking to become more independent throughout their golden years.

MCTS is teaming up with local partners to hold two free in-person “Senior Smart Ride” seminars that will explore transportation options for seniors in Milwaukee County.

  • Tuesday, October 12th
    • 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
    • Clinton & Bernice Rose Senior Center
    • 3045 N. Dr. Martin Luther King Drive, Milwaukee
  • Wednesday, October 13th
    • 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
    • Wilson Park Senior Center
    • 2601 W. Howard Avenue, Milwaukee

There will be hands-on learning opportunities and presentations from MCTS, Transit Plus, Milwaukee County Department on Aging, and Milwaukee Police. Attendees will learn who qualifies for Paratransit door-to-door service, how to ride fixed route buses, how to pay, bus etiquette, safety while traveling to your destination, and so much more. There will even be a MCTS bus available to take attendees on a short ride around the neighborhood to demonstrate what riding the bus is like!

Anyone interested in attending either event should register in advance by clicking here or calling 414-937-3253. If a sign language interpreter is needed, please email marketing@mcts.org to request accommodations.

All attendees are required to wear a mask while inside the senior centers or while on board the bus.
