Western Kenosha County Transit expands with routes aimed at commuters

Western Kenosha County Transit is adding new routes and increased local service starting Dec. 28.

New routes aimed at commuters include early morning service from Twin Lakes to Kenosha and Antioch, Ill. with stops in Paddock Lake, Silver Lake and Salem. The morning commuter service will allow for riders to connect with Kenosha Area Transit buses or METRA trains in Antioch. Commuter service continues in the evening hours providing many options for riders to use Western Transit for both legs of a work commute. Expanded commuter service is available Monday through Friday.

“This is an opportunity for Western Kenosha County commuters to save time, gas money and to avoid driving headaches,” County Executive Jim Kreuser said. “We hope people will take advantage of this opportunity.”

Other changes to Western Transit effective Monday include revisions to the schedule and bus stop locations with new stops in Twin Lakes and Camp Lake. Consult the new schedule for changes. The new schedule is also now available on all Western Transit buses, online at www.co.kenosha.wi.us/countytransit.html or by calling 888-203-3498.

The bus fare is $2 per one-way trip or $10 for an unlimited ride monthly pass.

Door-to-door service is available with a reservation. For more information call 888-203-3498
