Buses operate in both directions along Wisconsin Ave. When traveling to Festa Italiana, the shuttle stops between N. 6th Street and N. Jackson Street, then proceeds directly to Mid Gate. Stops are made at all bus stops marked with the Summerfest smile logo.

Freeway Flyer service will be available for the following park-and-ride lots: Brown Deer East, College, Holt, State Fair Park, and Watertown Plank Road.
