GETTING TO & FRO: Transportation Options in The Region

Milwaukee is blessed with a variety of transportation options that make it easy to get both in and out of the region as well to various points within the region. In addition to the three interstate highways that intersect the city – I-94, I-41 and I-43 – the region offers convenient options to travel by air, train or boat.

Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport

Located just 10 minutes from downtown Milwaukee, Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport (MKE) offers nonstop flights to more than 30 destinations coast-to-coast, and hundreds of national and international destinations with just one connection. The MKE experience is considered “first class” with easy parking (including valet), convenient access and minimal stress – getting from car to gate can be accomplished in as little as 10 minutes. There’s even a coat-check for leaving your winter coat behind when traveling to warmer destinations, and the world’s only named recombobulation area after you pass through security. MKE has received top honors from both Condé Nast Traveler and J.D. Power, and in 2021 and 2022 was named a “Best Airport” by Airport Service Quality, the world’s leading airport passenger service benchmarking program. For more information, please visit:
