The shuttle runs Mon-Fri from 6am to 9pm.  It is the only on-call FREE shuttle service of its kind in Milwaukee.  The map shows general route "guidelines". The shuttle does not always run the route on a regular basis, however these are the main areas that are covered during its operation. 

If you are in need of a ride, we recommend calling the shuttle directly at the number below. Riders should not wait longer than 15 minutes for a ride. (NOTE: Hours & pickup schedule will be adjusted or change according to the demand of the shuttle service.)

To request a shuttle please call  414-467-4660

Italian Community Center Morning Pick-ups:

In order to maintain balance during the early morning demand for the shuttle, scheduled pickups from the Italian Community Center parking lot began in January 2017.  Between the hours of 7:30am to 9:30am, anyone who needs a ride from the ICC will need to choose between the following pickup times:





The shuttle driver will wait no longer than 2 minutes at each pickup time, due to the increase in calls from other pickup locations in the Third Ward. The shuttle will not respond to phone requests from the ICC lot between 7:30am to 9:30am.  We will offer the on-call service outside this time frame for ICC parkers.  We ask all riders to be patient, as it is typical that request for ridership increases dramatically during both the morning and evening rush hours.

Questions or concerns - please call 414-336-1111
