MILWAUKEE — Summefest announced Tuesday that it has hired a private shuttle company to transport those going to the festival this year. A round-trip ticket costs $12.

The Milwaukee County Transit System along with other shuttle providers said they couldn't offer rides this year.

The new shuttle will start at 11 a.m. and run every 30 minutes. There are three park and ride locations:

  • 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

You will be dropped off just west of the Mid-Gate.

Those riding the bus will be required to have a wristband to show proof of purchase. If you lose the wristband, you will have to pay full price for a new one. A one-way and round-trip ticket costs $12.
