Milwaukee County Executive to offer free bus rides on July 6

Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele announced that all MCTS buses will be free on Monday, July 6, 2015.

“This day of free transit won’t make up for the massive inconvenience riders felt last week when union leaders went out on strike, however it’s the least we can do to thank the community for their patience,” County Executive Abele said. “I know most drivers agree with me that the best way to continue to serve the community is to get back to work and provide the rides that so many people depend on.”

Union leaders said the strike could end Saturday, July 4, 2015.

“I want to thank all the employees at MCTS who stayed on the job the past few days to make sure service would be ready as soon as this strike ended,” County Executive Abele said.
