Milwaukee, WI – Beginning Sunday, January 2, Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) service changes approved in the 2011 Milwaukee County Budget will go into effect. While three Freeway Flyer routes will be eliminated, two routes will be adjusted to serve other park-ride lots. Additionally, frequency on some Saturday bus routes will change.
Changes are as follows:
Additionally, beginning Saturday, January 8, 2011, Saturday service on 13 routes will be reduced to Sunday level of service. Those routes are 10, 11, 12, 14, 31, 33, 35, 51, 53, 54, 57, 67 and 80.
