'MCTS NEXT' system redesign to enter final phase 🚌
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- If you use the Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS), get ready for more changes. The final phase of the MCTS redesign takes effect Sunday, Aug. 29.
The makeover is called "MCTS NEXT" and it's been a process that's played out over several years. The redesign includes improvements and adjustments to Routes 22, 28, 54, 55, 56, 60, 76, and BlueLine. Additionally, there are three new routes – Routes 18, 66, and 92 – that will begin operation. Routes 64 and 67 will be retired.
The idea is to improve convenience for people who need to use the buses.
"Extended routes into job centers, big box stores, where people are essential workers, we've created routes to get them to work more efficiently, faster and easier routing to understand," said Kristina Hoffman, with MCTS.
