The Hop

Streetcar Flats is aptly named as it is located on the M-Line of Milwaukee’s only streetcar, The Hop. The Hop is free to ride, and there is a conveniently located stop just outside the front door on North Broadway.

The Hop streetcars arrive every 15-20 minutes making this the easiest and most convenient way to travel to many popular destinations and events in Downtown Milwaukee, including the Intermodal Station, Bastille Days, and countless others. Check out the map and links below to view to operating hours and see where you can go with The Hop!

The L-Line is expected to begin operations in 2023, giving you access to even more of Milwaukee!
