MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Health Department is offering a shuttle service to the new Miller Park COVID-19 testing site, and it's free of charge.
The new service will operate every weekday from 10:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. The new service is just one way the health department is making sure community members can get tested free of charge.
According to the health department, the shuttle travels a predetermined route through downtown Milwaukee, making stops at multiple transfer points for Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) buses.
The shuttle will operate using Lamers buses and is not affiliated with the Milwaukee County Transit System. However, it does follow the old Route 90 - Brewers Line.
All patrons on the shuttle will be required to wear a mask, and seating is set up so people can socially distance.
The shuttle system is funded by the federal CARES Act, and an additional shuttle route to the Miller Park testing site is in the planning stages. That could begin service as soon as next week, the health department said.
The current shuttle service includes the following stops:
- On Water Street & at Juneau Avenue – connecting MCTS Routes 15, 33, 57 and GreenLine.
- Water & State – Routes 15, 57 and GreenLine
