MCTS is a nonprofit company that reports directly to the government of Milwaukee County. Like any nonprofit organization during these times, our focus is on being economically viable while operating a reliable, consistent and an easy-to-use public bus system. We are not financially able to make in-kind donations of bus fare to organizations or donate passes for events.
