Instructions for Route Schedules

The following is a list of instructions on how to understand a Waukesha Metro Transit bus schedule.

 

1. The first step is you must know what route you need to take to get to your destination. If you do not know, please consult the Bus Routes web page or the Waukesha Transit Guide Map. Once you have determined which route you need, go to that Route's page.

Ex: let's say you want Route 1. You would then go to the Route 1 page.

 

2. After you have determined what route you need, you then have to determine which way you will need to go on the route and what day you are planning on taking the trip.

 

Ex: If you are planning a trip to the Downtown Transit Center from around Target, you would need a Route 1 bus coming from Brookfield Square going to Downtown. You also decide that you will take the bus on Wednesday. Once you are on the Route 1 web page, you would click on "Weekday Schedule To Downtown".

 

Note: The column headings on the schedule below are time points. The time points are the times that the bus is scheduled to be at the particular location. You can use the time points to determine when the bus will be by a particular stop.

3. Now decide what time you need to be at your destination. Once you have done that, go to the schedule and look at what time the bus will arrive at your destination. Then go back to the left of that row until you find the time point closest to the location of where you are planning to get on the bus. The time in that cell will help you determine the time you need to get on the bus to reach your destination on time.

 

Ex: You decide that you need to be at the Transit Center at 10:47 a.m. (highlighted in red in the table below). You then scroll to the left until you find the "Target" column. The time in this cell is 10:23 a.m. (highlighted in red in the table below). You are actually getting on the bus near Farm & Fleet on Abbott Road so this time is not the exact time the bus will be by your stop, but it is a reference. The bus will actually be by Abbott Road about a minute after it leaves Target because Abbott Road is a about a 1/4 mile closer to the terminal. This means that you will need to get on the bus on Abbott Road at 10:24 a.m. to arrive at the Transit Center at 10:47 a.m.

Please pay close attention to which schedule you are reading on this website because not all routes have their schedules in the same place (i.e. Weekday To the Downtown on Route 1 is on a separate page whereas Weekday to the Downtown for Route 2 is on the "Route 2 main page").

For an added convenience, you can view each route's map and entire schedule in a single page format. The schedule and map are exactly like our paper schedules. They can be printed on a standard 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of paper. This does, however, require Adobe Acrobat to view. To download your FREE copy, click on "Adobe Acrobat".
