MCTS Remembers Bus Driver John Reed


MILWAUKEE - It’s with great sadness that the Milwaukee County Transit System shares news about the passing of longtime MCTS Bus Driver John Reed.

Our deepest condolences go out to his family, friends and co-workers – as well as the passengers who he loved so much.

John was a kind, compassionate and devoted employee who developed friendships with many people over the years, including those who rode his bus.

In 2018, John was featured in a MCTS Excellence video after he befriended a little girl and her mother. On his last day driving that route, John gave the girl a gift bag filled with toys, coloring books and crayons. The family became close friends with John and even visited him in the hospital before he passed away.

John was recently diagnosed with cancer. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the American Lung Association in John’s memory.
