Hello and thank you for your letter. With our Madison depot closing, we no longer make stops on East Washington Avenue. With this change, customers who have used the East Washington stops will need to either come to the Memorial Union, Kelley’s Market on West Washington or Dutch Mill. While we understand that this change will cause inconvenience to some, we feel this change, and especially our new stop at Dutch Mill, allows us to offer a better location that can serve not only the East Side passengers but the West Side and South Side passengers who previously had to go downtown to catch the bus. For years, we have had customers ask us to make the stop at Dutch Mill and with our passenger load counts from Dutch Mill after less than a month of service; it has shown us that this change is indeed appreciated and being utilized.

At this time, we have not made plans to stop at the new Greyhound station. As far as we understand that location near Woodmans has not been finalized yet so there is still some uncertainty in that move. On the way back from Milwaukee the only bus that will make any stops on East Washington is the 7am departure. All other buses will make the stop at Dutch Mill on their schedules. Please write back if I can be of further assistance. Thank you.
