Milwaukee County Transit System 4818

On N. 5th St. at W. St. Paul Ave. in Downtown Milwaukee.

Assigned to Route 12 (Teutonia-Hampton) and on its way to Milwaukee's far north side.

Taken on Friday August 17, 2018 via my cell phone.

As Sunday August 26, 2018. Fiebrantz Garage will be closed and Routes 6, 12, 42U, 49U, 63, 76, 143, 276 and the handful of runs on Route 67 will be shifted to Fond du Lac Garage. All buses and employees will be reassigned to Fond du Lac. This will forever leave 2 garages. Fond du Lac on the north side and Kinnickinnic on the south side. The reason is budget cuts. Milwaukee once had 7 bus garages (then Car Barns) before 1955.

Fiebrantz Garage opened in 1930 and housed streetcars, trackless trolleys, gas & diesel buses and all were parked outside. In 1968, a garage was built and renovated in the late 1980's to bring it up to standards. Unknown what will happen to the garage after its closure.
