[ARCHIVED] Wisconsin Coach Lines / Coach USA Launches New Daily Milwaukee-Milton-Janesville Transit Route

(WAUKESHA, WI) – Wisconsin Coach Lines/COACH USA Milwaukee, in partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), is excited to announce the launch of daily motorcoach bus service from Milwaukee, WI to Janesville, WI. This new route will allow commuters easy connections to and from Mitchell International Airport, as well as the Downtown Milwaukee Intermodal Facility and in Janesville, where they can connect to train service, bus service, and airlines. A full list of connecting services by stop location can be found at www.wisconsincoach.com.

The Milwaukee-Janesville loop is as follows:

  • Milwaukee Intermodal Facility – 433 W. St. Paul Avenue, Milwaukee
  • Mitchell International Airport – Milwaukee
  • Muskego/Piggly Wiggly – W189 S7847 Racine Avenue
  • East Troy Airport Park & Ride – Hwy 20 @ Hwy. L
  • Whitewater Depot Lot A – 313 W. Whitewater Street
  • Milton/Piggly Wiggly – 727 S. Janesville St.
  • Janesville Van Galder Depot – 3120 N. Pontiac Drive
  • Janesville Transit Center – 123 S. River Street

The route will service each of the above locations and will consist of one trip south-bound in the morning, and one trip northbound in the afternoon, on a deluxe Wisconsin Coach Lines/Coach USA motorcoach bus. Fares will range from as low as $3 to $24 one way. Senior and child fares are also available.

The bus will be stopping at the Milton Piggly Wiggly, each day at 11:20am before heading southbound to Janesville. The bus will then return to the Milton Piggly Wiggly each day at 12:40pm. This service will be available seven days a week.

“This new service will be a welcome addition to these various communities, by bringing greater access and connections to regional transportation options,” stated Tom Dieckelman, President Wisconsin Coach Lines/Coach USA Milwaukee.

WisDOT identified the Janesville to Milwaukee corridor as being in need of public transit service in the Connections 2030 long-range transportation plan. Wisconsin Coach Lines was awarded the grant to operate this route through a competitive solicitation.

Funding for this route will be provided through the intercity bus portion of the Federal Transit Administration’s Formula Grants for Rural Areas program. In all, WisDOT will execute over $2,000,000 in federal grants to fund eight intercity bus routes connecting major transportation hubs with rural locations throughout the state.
