Waukesha County Express offers transportation between Waukesha and Milwaukee counties via Wisconsin Coach Lines. Free Wi-Fi is included on all buses operated by Wisconsin Coach Lines. Routes to UWM include 901, 904, and 905.
Previously, to reduce traffic congestion on the freeway during the Zoo Interchange project, Waukesha county received funding to allow UWM students/staff to display their UPASS/CVP for free access to ride their routes. These routes provide service to Brookfield, Delafield, Pewaukee, Oconomowoc, and Waukesha. Unfortunately, that project is coming to a close and the government did not renew the funding for the bus routes. Routes 901, 904, and 905 will no longer be free for students/faculty/staff. Please see Waukesha County Transit Fares for information on pricing.

Student Bus Pass (UPASS)
UW—Milwaukee developed the UPASS transit program to serve both commuting students and students living on or near campus.
If you are experiencing any issues with your UPASS, please visit Transportation Services for a solution.
UW–Milwaukee offers through the Transportation Services office a reduced fare, unlimited ride, bus pass for faculty and staff. This pass is commonly known as the Employee Bus Pass or also the Commuter Value Pass (CVP) and provides access to all Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) buses.
