Day of Free Public Transporation

Rides on all MCTS buses will be free for everyone on April 28, 2015 thanks to the Greater Milwaukee Foundation. The rides are part of the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s centennial Gift to the Community.

As part of celebrating 100 years of service, the Greater Milwaukee Foundation is providing Gifts to the Community to showcase resources that contribute to greater Milwaukee’s vitality. April’s gift recognizes the value of transit to the region’s economy and quality of life.

“Through this gift, the Greater Milwaukee Foundation is once again showing why their work is so important to our community,” said Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele. “Tens of thousands of people rely on transit every day to get to work and school, to run errands and to explore their community. This gift is a unique opportunity for more people to experience the ease of public transportation and see why it is so important to our community.”

Besides Milwaukee County, transit systems throughout Waukesha, Washington and Ozaukee counties will also offer rides at no cost on Tuesday, April 28, during their respective operating hours.

For more information on the free rides visit the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s website: www.greatermilwaukeefoundation.org/about-us/centennial/gifts-community/
