Milwaukee Police are investigating a potential bomb threat made on a Milwaukee County Transit System bus near Fond du Lac and Roosevelt Wednesday night. 

MCTS says the call came in around 7 p.m. that a male passenger got off a Route 61 bus and said something to the driver about having a bomb. 

There was not a direct threat made to the driver or passengers, but per protocol, the driver called police after the threat was made. 

None of the passengers or the driver were injured. MCTS is trying to get surveillance footage to help police identify and capture the suspect.
