All aboard. The Milwaukee Hop streetcar line is ready to welcome its first public passengers this weekend when it becomes fully operational on Friday.
Businesses along the streetcar line are preparing for a boost this weekend. Many will be offering celebratory deals.
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is hopeful that hundreds to thousands of people will take advantage of riding opening weekend. The mayor is also inviting those near and far to try out the new line.
The route for The Hop extends from the Milwaukee Intermodal station to Burns Commons.
