MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee County Transit System is suspending bus fares to help protect employees and the general public during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Starting at 4 a.m. on Saturday, March 28, MCTS is suspending fare collection. Bus drivers will also let riders know that they must enter and exit the bus through the rear door only unless they need assistance with a mobility device or other ADA accommodation.

Suspending fare collection limits the interaction between riders and bus drivers.
"While Congress works to create a new Federal Transit Administration grant program to help transit systems sustain operations during the COVID-19 pandemic, MCTS is doing its part to help ensure continuation of mass transit in Milwaukee County in this time of need," said MCTS Managing Director, Dan Boehm.
