I commute to school and drive 60 miles one way. Morning traffic in downtown Milwaukee takes a lot of extra time just to get to school.
MIAD gives the students free bus passes every semester including summer. And the buses are relatively reliable. Taxis, just like everywhere are pretty expensive. I don't know anyone at school who uses taxis. The airport is a 15 minute car ride away, and really good. There is a shuttle that takes students to and from the 2040 lofts as well as the dorms we have leased on the UWM campus called Park Place. Bikes are always welcome and there's a parking lot for student vehicles.
MIAD supplies the new students with free transportation via a MIAD student-only shuttle. It's not accessible to all students, and while this is an inconvenience to some, I personally don't mind taking public transportation because the busses are always running, and sometimes I just walk to and from school. It makes sense to me that foundation students have passes for the shuttle, because there is a huge amount of diversity at MIAD where there are students from different states and backgrounds who may not know the Milwaukee/surrounding area just yet.
Milwaukee Bus System – This is the most common method of transport. Unfortunately, a lot of the bus drivers are 10, sometimes 20 minutes off schedule, or just never show up at all. But I guess 85% of the time the buses get you where you need to go reasonably on time.
The dorms are 3+ miles away from campus. OUCH. Yeah they're nice, but pretty expensive, and the people there are rude, and the MIAD transportation is nonexistent. It's seriously so bad. Get your bus pass and get over it.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
