Announcements, press releases, press conferences, etc.

  • Due to Memorial Day, Metro operates holiday schedules on Monday, May 31.  Metro's customer service center will be open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The administration office will be closed on the holiday.  Details can be found here.
  • Reminder: Face masks are still required on Metro buses.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued an Order that requires all passengers to wear face masks on all forms of public transit, including on Metro Transit buses, and at transfer points and shelters.  It is federal law that masks must be worn when boarding, disembarking, and for the duration of travel.  The law remains in effect until September 13, 2021. 
  • There will be no recycling, trash, brush, or large item collections performed by the City of Madison Streets Division on Monday, May 31, 2021 in observance of the Memorial Day holiday. The Streets Division drop-off sites will also be closed.  Read more here
  • Do you TICK the boxes?  Anyone who has spent time in Wisconsin, likely knows a thing or two about the prevalence of ticks in the spring and summer. However, according to a recent survey conducted by the University of Wisconsin Department of Entomology, only 25% of 130 respondents could identify the ticks that transmit Lyme disease.  Read more here
  • The window for beach season in Wisconsin is short. Public Health Madison & Dane County is already hard at work making sure you make the most of it. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, a team from Public Health monitors conditions and test water at local beaches, splash pads and pools to determine if they are safe for recreation and swimming.  Read more here
  • As part of Mayor Satya Rhode-Conway's Metro Forward>> initiative, a major investment in Madison mass transit, the City of Madison is teaming up with the Madison Metropolitan School District to distribute a summer Metro Transit pass to ALL middle and high school students for the first time. Previously only a small number of students were eligible for free summer passes.  Read more here
  • The new work order system for large item disposal and recycling is now available.  Residents should use the work order system to schedule large item collections.  You can also use the work order system to purchase recycling fee stickers for items coming to the drop-off site. You only have to purchase a recycling fee sticker if the item you are dropping off requires one. Check the Streets Division website or the Recyclopedia to learn which items have this requirement.  Learn more here.
  • The City of Madison, in partnership with the City of Fitchburg, welcome the Town of Madison with the launch of a public awareness campaign. The City of Madison and City of Fitchburg will officially absorb the Town of Madison on Oct. 31, 2022; however, the welcoming process begins with communication on how to stay informed while the attachment process happens.  Read more here
