Waukesha Coach operates three trips and from UWM for Waukesha Metro Transit, starting September 1st, 2020. Their 901 and 904/905 routes are running at reduced schedules due to COVID-19. Service may change over time based on rider demand and other factors. U-PASSes are not valid on Waukesha County Express buses.

Students are eligible for a $1 fare discount from the normal fare when they show a valid student ID. Prices vary based on where you board the bus. The normal one-way fares are $3.75 and $4.50, so student fares are $2.75 and $3.50. Students can purchase a ticket book worth 10 rides by calling 262-542-8861 with a credit card and purchases will be mailed to them. Riders can also pay the one-way fare into the fare box when boarding the bus.
