|Meet fellow hitchhikers on Trustroots|
Madison is a city in Wisconsin.
North towards Wausau, Eau Claire
The 30 East ramp entering I94/90/39 from US 151 eastbound (E Washington St.) is a great place to catch a ride. To get here from downtown, you can take an 06 northeast bus towards East Towne Mall. Ask to be dropped off as close to the I94N ramps as possible. You will have to walk 15 minutes.
North/East towards Oshkosh
There is no good way to hitch to Oshkosh from Madison. The best place to hitch from is probably on the shoulder of the 151 just after I94/90/39 intersects it. Be prepared to wait a while.
North/West towards La Crosse, Minneapolis, Hwy 90
On East Washington Ave and East Springs Dr, there's a Shell station and several fast food restaurants where cars can turn on their way to the highway (or you can directly ask people). They're going a bit fast but they have two opportunities to turn and can decide while at the stoplight as long as they can see you. There's an entrance to go to Chicago as well so a sign might be useful. After getting stuck in the evening Matt&camy got a ride after about 40 minutes the next day. In case you get stuck, you can go down E Springs Dr until you find a bowling alley next to a small grass area where you could pitch a tent although it's not the best.
South towards Chicago
Same spot as above to go North/West, E Washington and East Springs Dr.
East towards Milwaukee
The 30 East ramp entering I94/90/39 from US 151 eastbound (E Washington St.) is a great place to catch a ride. To get here from downtown, you can take an 06 northeast bus towards East Towne Mall.
