Milwaukee is the envy of other cities due to the ease and affordability of getting in and around downtown. You’ll spend less time in traffic and more time doing what you came here for. Parking is abundant, affordable and easy. Other transit options are available and Milwaukee is banking its future on new transit modes in the future. Stay tuned!

A comprehensive transit strategy that connects workers to jobs, helps the environment, and improves citywide accessibility is essential to the health and vitality of every urban community.
