Milwaukee Civic - Services - Transport - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA

Milwaukee offers a variety of transit options; because of its small size in area (Milwaukee County is the second-smallest county in terms of land area in the state) and high population (Milwaukee County is by far the most populous county in the state), this population density means that public transit can work fairly well; Milwaukee County's transit system is recognized as a well-run and efficient bus system
