Have you ever wondered if you could take a bus and train from Racine to Chicago and the North Shore suburbs and get back the same day? Now you can. Starting Monday, November 13, 2017 the new schedule for the Kenosha-Racine-Milwaukee (KRM) commuter bus line operated by Coach USA will connect you to Metra in Kenosha for only $2.50.
For example, you could park for free in the large lot behind the Racine Transit Center, catch the 7:15 a.m. southbound bus and transfer to the 7:51 a.m. Metra train. That train will get you to any of 14 North Shore train stations to start your workday before 9:00 a.m. You’ll arrive at the Ogilvie Transportation Center in Downtown Chicago for shopping or your meeting at 9:15 a.m
The return trip works just as well. At the end of your day, catch the train that arrives in Kenosha at 5:39 p.m. The KRM commuter bus will be waiting for you to take you back to the Racine Transit Center at 6:18 p.m.
Suppose you don’t need to spend the whole day, or need more time. Take Metra back to Kenosha at 2:18 p.m. Or stay later and return to Kenosha at 7:10 p.m. In either event, the KRM commuter bus will be waiting to give you a RYDE back home to Racine.
You can also use bus stops along the route on Douglas and MLK on the north side, and Marquette and Wis 32 on the south side.
The route works for Illinois workers coming to the growing employment opportunities in the Racine area, too. The KRM commuter bus will meet the 8:18 a.m. Metra train and take them to the Racine Transit Center for example, at 8:53 p.m. The return trip leaves the Transit Center at 5:09 p.m. and connects to Metra at 5:51 p.m.
Racine area residents can also use this connection to spend the day in the Chicago area on Saturdays and Sundays. Be at the Racine Transit Center on Saturdays at 8:00 a.m. and transfer to Metra at 8:34. Return on the Metra train to Kenosha at 2:15 p.m. or 7:25 p.m. RYDE will take you from there.
On Sundays, the KRM bus will be at the Racine Transit Center on Saturdays at 8:00 a.m. so you can transfer to Metra at 8:34 p.m., just like Saturdays. Coming back though, you’ll need to be on the 6:15 p.m. Metra train in Kenosha.
