'Hop' on Board Milwaukee's First Streetcar in Decades

For the first time in 60 years, Milwaukee residents can travel by streetcar with the recent launch of service on “The Hop,” owned by the city and operated under contract with Transdev.

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett called the launch of The Hop “a historical milestone, years in the making and one we’re excited to celebrate with the entire community.” He added, “The Hop will be a tremendous asset to the city and a key contributor to the renaissance we’re experiencing in Milwaukee. Whether you live downtown, work downtown or just enjoy experiencing all of the incredible energy, excitement and amenities the city has to offer, ride The Hop and help keep Milwaukee moving forward.”

Potawatomi Hotel & Casino is sponsoring the first year of Hop service, meaning that customers ride free during that time. The initial service, the M-Line, has 18 stations and a second route, the L-Line along the lakefront, is slated to open in 2020.
The Hop restores streetcar service in Milwaukee after 60 years.
