Ivic stopped her bus, ran across the street and picked up the child.
"Thank you, Irena and all members of the MCTS team, for your compassion, commitment to the community, and MCTS Excellence", MCTS officials said via a statement given to WISN-TV. Surveillance camera footage from inside the bus shows a concerned passenger waiting by the door when Ivic returned with the boy in her arms. "Baby was so scared and cried".
The video then shows a passenger walking up from the back of the bus and taking off her jacket, which Ivic used to keep the toddler warm.
The MCTS said in a statement that the baby was unharmed. "I couldn't believe that somebody left the child on the street".
From a distance on her regular morning route on Milwaukee's south side, just after 8 a.m., she saw him: a baby boy alone running along a freeway overpass sidewalk.

The new CLA gets an optional 10.25-inch infotainment display while gesture control and a new Burmester sound system are standard. The dashboard features a centrally mounted touchscreen and no cowl, with a "trench" splitting out the lower section.
Authorities reunited the baby boy with his father.
Irena Ivic-Drobnjak is being praised for her immediate action which may have saved the child's life. "She did the right thing", Abele said.
When asked about what happened Ivic herself, who is originally from Serbia, told reporters, "If I find myself in same situation, I will of course help, always".
This was the ninth lost or missing child found by MCTS drivers in recent years.
