MCTS Freeway Flyers resumes with updated schedules

The Milwaukee County Transit System Freeway Flyer routes (Routes 40, 43, 44, 46, 48, 49, 79, & 143) resumed service, with schedule adjustments, on Monday, Aug. 30. 

Freeway Flyers, which are buses that operate primarily between Park & Ride lots and downtown Milwaukee on weekday mornings and afternoons, were suspended in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic when many downtown businesses shut down in-person activity and transitioned to remote work — reducing the demand for commuter buses.

MCTS reminds passengers that federal regulations still require the use of masks while riding public transportation, regardless of vaccination status. This requirement from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) supersedes any local or state mask policies.
