Default bus or cab?

I'm trying to get to the Markan Admin. Bldg on N. 6th St. from Kenwood Ave (near the Student Union) in Milwaukee. Can I take a bus or would I be better off taking a cab. I think it's around 3.2mi. Also, which cab co. services this area?
Thanks

Google Maps can't find this Markan Admin. Bldg and I frankly, have never heard of it. Without an address I don't think a cab or a bus will do you much good.

Well, the reason Google Maps can't find it is because I am an idiot.
It's the Mardak Admin Bldg. on 1558 N. 6th St.
The jump off point is 2125 E. Kenwood Ave.
Thanks to both of you for helping out.

Airport Limos, Vans, and Taxis

Due to poor regulation and oversight by the Milwaukee County Board, your options are fragmented and needlessly expensive:
All local Taxi companies (Yellow cab co-op, Veterans Cab, and All-American [no websites]) serve the airport. Fares for 8 miles from Downtown to the Airport average $25-30. Taxis are poorly regulated, so expect high meter rates and poorly-paid immigrant drivers. Yellow Cab Co-op (don't be fooled by imitations) is the best of the taxi companies.

You can catch the southbound #15 bus at Kenwood & Oakland and get off at the Cherry Street bridge. From there you can either walk the few blocks or try to catch the #57 which will take you a block away from where you need to go. The time is about 1/2 hour. Bus schedules can be found in the UWM Union. Bus fares are $2 which includes a transfer. It is considerably cheaper than the cab fare.
