The Milwaukee Trolley Loop is making rounds throughout Downtown Milwaukee and it’s ready for more passengers! The Milwaukee Trolley Loop operates from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays, now through September 8th. Rides are $1 per person, round trip.

The loop connects visitors and Milwaukee residents to East Town, Westown, Water Street, Old World Third Street, the Historic Third Ward and the Milwaukee Art Museum.

So I went downtown to get my first experience of the trolley loop. I was joined with Executive Director of Downtown Milwaukee, Beth Nicols and Transit Express' Owner/Operator Mary Smarelli. Click the podcast below to hear the benefits of the trolley loop and how it’s making an impact on our downtown area.
