Streetcars Returning to Milwaukee!

Streetcar Lines Unveiled

Three possible routes for a downtown “starter” streetcar have been unveiled by Mayor Tom Barrett. The public is urged to provide comments on the proposed routes, which are designed to circulate the maximum number of riders throughout downtown and adjacent neighborhoods. More information about the routes and instructions for submitting comments are available at:

The streetcar would be largely funded by a $54.9 million federal grant.

  1. Yeah, I really think we have a pretty good shot of this going through finally. I prefer option 1(I think that's it) that basically goes from the Intermodal, through the Third Ward then up to Brady St (well Ogden until more $)
