Milwaukee Intermodal Station

The Milwaukee Intermodal Station is downtown’s transportation hub. For many, it’s the “gateway” into downtown. The station services approximately 1.4 million passengers annually with connections to Amtrak’s Hiawatha Service, which runs between Milwaukee and Chicago’s Union Station, and Empire Builder, which links Chicago, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Spokane and Portland; as well as Greyhound, Lamers, Jefferson Lines, Indian Trails, Coach USA buses, county transit, taxis and personal vehicles.

Milwaukee Streetcar

Milwaukee’s transportation system will gain an edge with the addition of a new, high-speed rail system. Funding of the new system comes from a $54.9 million dollar grant. The remaining $9.7 million will be offset by local sources.

The proposed route will encompass downtown’s Westown, East Town, Historic Third Ward and lower east side neighborhoods. In addition, the route will complement many existing public transportation modes, including Milwaukee County Transit System buses and regional connections available at the Milwaukee Intermodal Station.

Construction of the Milwaukee Streetcar is on track to begin spring 2014. The system should be in operation summer 2016.
