The stop where the 76 and 14 bus takes its layover. Before going to Southridge. They need to put benches there to sit on. Had to stand there half an hour. Till the right bus home came.
I am really sick and tired of yall bus drivers and their nasty attitudes seriously its very sicking.
Who do you talk to if you have a issue with a bus driver
WHERE ARE THE FREEWAY FLYERS ... THEY ARE NOT PART OF THE mcts NEXT GARBAGE PROGRAM... PLEASE DO YOUR MORAL OBLIGATION AND RESTORE THE FLYERS... AND QUIT CUTTING SERVICE TO DISABLED BUS PASSENGERS
mcts is an illegal and immoral private transportation company...contracted by milwaukee county to provide bus service...once again, MCTS management = hello DAN... was able to sneak in the immoral MCTS NEXT bus service, thus eliminating bus service for disabled bus passengers on the majority on the southwestern milwaukee bus routes... Dear managing director DAN = quit hating disabled bus riders... i beg you to ride those bus lines that you're cutting off to disabled people.... I BEG YOU to ride with me...and the media and county officials that MCTS and you lied to about that fake 1% ridership.... call me dan ... 262-527-7286. p.s. if you hate the bus drivers union... please DO NOT TAKE IT OUT ON BUS RIDERS... AND WHERE ARE THE FREEWAY FLYERS ???
Just so you know how you treat elders with disabilities...
What up with 30/Goldline...sign says go to 3rd and Wisconsin, I stand at 3rd and Wisconsin...buses go past without stopping... Eastbound this is. Either put back stop on 4th or please remind drivers to stop. Just got passed up yet again.
STOP SKIPPING STOPS WITH LESS THEN 15 RIDERS PRETENDING LIKE YOU GOT 15 WHEN WE SEE AN EMPTY BUS!!!! SIT IN YA ASS ALL DAY LONG, LEAST YOULL CAN DO IS STOP AT EVERY STOP WITH RIDERS(CUSTOMERS) WHEN YOUR BUS ISNT FULL!!!! TOO DAMN COKD, RAINING && OTHERS ACTUALLY DONT SIT ON THEY ASS ALL DAY FOR A PAYCHECK, WE JUST WANT TO GET HOME TO REST & START AGAIN TOMORROW.
Thanks for getting Google Maps working again. Best way to get around.
When are the flyers coming back?? Son wants to take Ozaukee flyer to school but still no service???
Driver on bus 5144 is very polite and attentive.
Tell or inform your drivers to stop speeding through Milwaukee , stop driving over curbs && to stop ignoring ppl running for the bus. Number one job is to pay attention to the streets & customers. So when approaching a stop (this include lines like the gold line, that driver other routes path like the 30) check to see if someone is standing near it or running towards it..... look to notice anybody that’s waving near stops & RUNNING!!!! If I get upset again due to MCTS I’m gathering friends and family and we doing something about it ourselves. Unacceptable I keep missing buses cause drivers are careless to the customers.
