Milwaukee Health Dept. offers shuttle service for COVID-19 testing

The City of Milwaukee Health Department is offering free shuttle service to the Miller Park COVID-19 testing site.  The shuttle will operate continuously from 10:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. on weekdays, beginning a half-hour before testing starts.

The Miller Park site is already open to both drive-up and walk-up patrons.

According to a press release, the shuttle travels a predetermined route through downtown Milwaukee, making stops at multiple transfer points for Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) buses. While the Miller Park shuttle is not an MCTS service, it does follow the old Route 90 - Brewers Line. 

People riding the shuttle to the Miller Park testing site should look for yellow signs at the designated stops. The shuttle will operate using Lamers buses.
