Detours & Service Changes

 COVID-19 Update

Per the order of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) all passengers 2 years and older riding a Waukesha Metro bus must wear a face mask (or covering) while on the bus or inside the Transit Center.   The face mask (or covering) should cover the passenger’s mouth and nose.   Passengers with a disability that prevents them from wearing a face covering are not required to wear a mask.   This mask order replaces the previous State mask order and lowers the age of required mask wearing to 2 years old.     Free face masks are available at the Transit Center office from 8 am to 5 pm Monday – Friday.   Face masks are also available on the bus as well. 

The following other changes are still enforced:
A maximum of 15 passengers on the bus at one time.    

Lost and found will be limited to essential personal items.

Unlimited riding will remain prohibited. 

The Transit Center Lobby is open  on weekdays 6 am - 9 pm and scheduled hours on weekends.  

Passengers must maintain their social distance while at the Transit Center.   

Thank you for continuing to riding Waukesha Metro Transit!
