|Fond Du Lac Garage, located near the center of Milwaukee, is the hub of the system.
It houses the head offices and main repair and maintenance facilities of MCTS.
With the retirement of the remaining GMC new looks in 2000, this brought an end to rollsigns
in active buses in Milwaukee, as their current fleet is 100% electronic destination signs.
