We may be relocating to Milwaukee and my husband would be working downtown and taking the bus. Is there a street that has several apartment options that is also on a direct bus route to downtown? For example, where we live now there is a beautiful blvd with several apt. buildings and an express bus route to downtown. If you don't know of the bus route, could you just point us in the direction of some good apartment options in a neighborhood that is walking distance to some commercial/retail and is withing 5 miles of downtown...yet safe and a good place for young kids? Thank you so much for your help!!

I lived on WI ave across from Froedert Hospital (93rd & WI)..had my own car but did take the bus a couple of times and it was quick...no more than 20 minutes (and i worked downtown)...i would say around the medical complex is a good start...maybe others will have better ideas as I moved away awhile ago

I am on the east side and it takes me about twenty minutes to get to work downtown by bus on the #15. That goes down Oakland to Brady and then to Water St. I used to take the #10 when I lived on Humboldt near North Ave. and that took about 15 minutes. For me that was a desirable commute. Anything over a half-hour would be too much. Use that as your guide and you could live on the south edge of Shorewood or the east side of Milwaukee. The west side and south side offer similar opportunities but you'd have to live in the city of Milwaukee for that half-hour cut-off point.

There is the freeway flyer but typically you would need to use those from park and ride lots which means being dropped off by car in most cases.
