MCTS Driver Finds Lost and Shivering Child


MCTS Driver Karen Martinez-Casper was driving the Route 80 early on a chilly October morning when she noticed a little boy all alone. Karen pulled over and got out to check on the boy and saw he was not wearing shoes or socks and was shivering.

Karen took the boy into her bus to warm him up and call for help.

Karen's story of MCTS Excellence received worldwide attention and positive news coverage. Check out one of those stories here.

Karen was also honored by Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele and Milwaukee Alderman Cavalier “Chevy” Johnson with official County and City resolutions.
