Summerfest to provide bus shuttle service for fest-goers in 2021

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Summerfest will provide a shuttle offering a streamlined and convenient option for fest-goers to get to Summerfest in 2021. 

The bus service will operate during the nine days of the festival, September 2-4, 9-11, 16-18, 2021, beginning at 11:00 a.m., and run continuously throughout the day, approximately every 30 minutes. Shuttles will not be available during the Wednesday weekend kick-off concerts.

Three park and ride lot locations will be utilized during Summerfest and include:

  • College Avenue – College Avenue at I-94 (both lots)
  • State Fair Park - I-94.S. 76th Street & W. Kearney
  • Brown Deer – East Brown Deer Road, west of I-43

The drop off/pick up location at Summerfest is located just west of the Summerfest Mid-Gate.

Round-trip fare is $12. To save time, riders are encouraged to pre-purchase round-trip ride tickets at, or upon exiting the bus, pay upon arrival at Summerfest. Only debit or credit cards will be accepted. Pre-paid riders must present their online purchase bar code at the Summerfest kiosk to receive the round-trip ride wristband.

Once paid, all bus shuttle passengers will receive a wristband, which is mandatory to show when getting back on the bus to the park and ride lot. If a rider does not have a wristband after leaving Summerfest, they can purchase one for the full-price fare.

Riders are also encouraged to wear masks while riding the Summerfest shuttle
