The city’s long-awaited streetcar, The Hop, launches its initial 2.5-mile loop on the streets of Milwaukee today. Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Potawatomi Hotel & Casino, rides on The Hop will be free for its inaugural year.
Just three blocks away from Milwaukee’s convention center, meeting attendees have easy access to the streetcar. The Hop is the perfect way for visitors to get to Milwaukee’s world-class attractions, restaurants, shops, and more.
“Milwaukee is in the midst of an unprecedented downtown boom and The Hop is a critical part of connecting it all,” says VISIT Milwaukee CEO Paul Upchurch. “We know visitors, whether they’re here for business or leisure, will enjoy the convenience and affordability that this fixed-transit system brings.”
