MILWAUKEE INTERMODAL STATION
The city’s train and bus station is located at the southern edge of downtown, just blocks from the Wisconsin Center. The Milwaukee Intermodal Station features 14 total Amtrak departures daily between downtown Chicago and Milwaukee and daily direct departures to and from Minneapolis/St. Paul. It is also the main hub for intercity bus travel, with service from Greyhound, Badger Bus, MegaBus, and more. Located just across the street from the station is the start and end station for Milwaukee’s streetcar, The Hop, which loops through downtown. There is also a Bublr Bike bikeshare station right outside.
Milwaukee’s port on the coast of Lake Michigan is your port of call whether you’re coming by ferry or by cruise ship. The Lake Express Ferry is a state-of-the-art auto/passenger ferry linking Milwaukee with Muskegon, Michigan. The 2 1/2 hour trip offers passengers a faster and more direct route than driving south around Lake Michigan through the Chicago area. Milwaukee is also happy to welcome Great Lakes cruises at two passenger docks, Pier Wisconsin and the South Shore Cruise Dock.
