MCTS gives Rosa Parks a headlight tribute
Notice that local buses are beaming? It’s no mistake. The Milwaukee County Transit System will keep the headlights shining on its entire fleet today, Dec. 1, to honor the life of Rosa Parks and her contribution to equal rights. Parks, who died on Oct. 24, 2005, at age 92, was an African-American woman who was arrested for refusing to give up her seat to a white man in Montgomery, Ala., on Dec. 1, 1955.
The Milwaukee County Transit System operates daily and provides more than 42 million rides each year.
