The Hop MKE | Milwaukee Streetcar

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Description


The Hop, also known as the Milwaukee Streetcar, is a new modern streetcar system in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States. The 2.1-mile (3.4 km) initial line connects the Milwaukee Intermodal Station and Downtown to the Lower East Side and Historic Third Ward neighborhoods. A 0.4-mile (640 m) Lakefront branch, to the proposed "Couture" high-rise development, has been mostly constructed, but is not projected to open until late 2020.


The first construction work on the project took place in late 2016 with completion in summer 2018. Service to the public began on November 2, 2018.

Ride For Free For A Year

Expected fare (after initial 12-month free period): $1.00


All rides will be free for the first year thanks to Potawatomi Hotel & Casino! Just hop on and hop off to connect with jobs, entertainment, dining and more!


After the first year of operation, passengers will purchase tickets off-vehicle as there are no fareboxes on board. Fare inspectors will make random checks of all passengers throughout the day to make sure they have valid streetcar passes.
