MILWAUKEE (February 25, 2019) — MCTS is hosting three Open Houses in key areas of Milwaukee County to hear the community’s final feedback before plans for the MCTS NEXT project move forward.
MCTS NEXT is the first comprehensive review of the Milwaukee County Transit System in decades and it’s critical that members of the public attend one of the following sessions to view the latest plan and have their voices heard.

As part of the MCTS NEXT process, MCTS staff spent nearly a year examining and evaluating every route and bus stop across the MCTS service area to identify opportunities for improvements, added efficiency and faster service.
This study helped MCTS create two proposed route maps. Based on feedback gathered from thousands of people in Milwaukee County, MCTS is now developing an updated recommended plan that will be submitted to the Milwaukee County Board for approval. This plan will be available for final public comment online and in-person starting March 7.
Transit systems across the country that have gone through reviews similar to MCTS NEXT have seen overall ridership increase and customer satisfaction improve.
