The Hop and Milwaukee Downtown BID, #21 partnering to celebrate Halloween on the streetcar

Halloween is coming on board the streetcar this year as The Hop, presented by Potawatomi Hotel & Casino, is partnering with Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21 on a new “Tricks, Treats, Tracks” celebration.

On Saturday, Oct. 30, 2021 from 1-4 p.m., Milwaukee Downtown’s Public Service Ambassadors will be on board each in-service streetcar handing out pre-packaged candy courtesy of Hintz-Giuffre CPAs along with special Colectivo Coffee coloring books. Supplies are limited, so riders are encouraged to come early and enjoy the festive atmosphere on the streetcars.

Riders are encouraged to come in family-friendly costumes – especially Hop- or streetcar-themed costumes – and share their selfies on the streetcar using #thehopmke for the chance to win a Hop T-shirt. While costumes aren’t required, please keep in mind that masks still are on all forms of public transit as we all work to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Streetcar riders can plan their trip by seeing the real- time positions of the streetcars and exploring destinations or parking options along the route by visiting The Transloc app also provides real-time streetcar information and can be accessed via
