Eastbound buses operate N on 84th, E on Kearney to the Fair Park Park & Ride Lot, then E to 68th, and E via I-94. Westbound buses exit I-94 at 68th Street, and operate W to 76th, S past the Fair Park Park & Ride Lot to Greenfield, and W on Greenfield. Until May 2005, route 16 buses operated via I-94 and I-43 to Locust Street, and served UWM with the same routing as used by route 40U. However, due to Marquette Interchange construction, the route was shifted to Lincoln Memorial Drive to alleviate delays encountered by buses using the EB 94 to NB 43 ramp. Officially, the Lincoln Memorial Drive routing is considered a detour. Route 16 was changed to Route 44U in December 2005. Route 16 was no longer existed anymore because of the changes.

Route 4BV was discontinued in 2009.
