Milwaukee's first streetcar is in service. And it is free of charge!
We are very proud to serve Milwaukee, a forward-thinking city now incorporating streetcars as part of its vision for improved mobility and for the continued development and revitalization of its center city.
Under a five-year contract awarded by the Milwaukee Department of Public Works, Transdev will now oversee all aspects of the operation of Milwaukee’s streetcar services. Transdev will be in charge of the overall performance of the system, including personnel management and driver training, as well as customer service and security. Vehicle maintenance and servicing will be managed by Brookville, the tram manufacturer, under the supervision of Transdev.
The Milwaukee Streetcar adds to Transdev’s growing portfolio of streetcar operations and maintenance in the USA (Cincinnati, Detroit and now Milwaukee).
We have a strong team in Milwaukee and are committed to providing first-rate service. I look forward to the enhancements and improved efficiency we will implement over time to benefit passengers and our client. We are committed to continuing to build a strong partnership with the Milwaukee Department of Public Works and to helping them achieve their goals.
