KENOSHA -- Coach USA is now connecting bus riders to the Metra Station in Kenosha with their new Kenosha-Racine-Milwaukee bus line schedule.  

Parking is available behind the Racine Transit Center on State  Street.

Passengers commuting to work can take the 7:15 a.m. southbound bus to connect to the 7:51 a.m. Metra in Kenosha. The train makes 14 stops before it ultimately arrives at the Ogilvie Transportation Center in Downtown Chicago. All of the stops arrive before 9 a.m.

A Northbound bus will pick up those who arrive  in Kenosha at 5:39 p.m. and commute them  back to the Racine Transit Center. They will arrive back in Racine at 6:18 p.m. 

"The route works for Illinois workers coming to the growing employment opportunities in the Racine area, too," a press release from the City of Racine said.  

For those who commute to Kenosha, the KRM bus will pick up passengers from the 8:18 a.m. Metra train, and it arrives  at the Racine Transit Center at 8:53 p.m. The return trip leaves the Transit Center at 5:09 p.m. and connects to Metra at 5:51 p.m.  

The Commuter bus is $2.50 per trip. 

The full schedule is available on coach USA's website.
