Milwaukee –The Hop, presented by Potawatomi Hotel & Casino, today announced extended hours to accommodate Summerfest attendees staying until the festival closes each night. For all nine nights of the Summerfest run, the streetcar will extend operations until 1 a.m.
The streetcar’s two Historic Third Ward stations are just a 10-minute walk from the Summerfest main gate, making The Hop a convenient and free option for accessing The Big Gig. Festivalgoers can avoid the hassle and expense of trying to park near the Summerfest grounds by hopping on the streetcar, exploring downtown, and enjoying a safe ride both to and from the festival.
