GRTC honors Rosa Parks by reserving seat on every bus

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Rosa Parks' courageous act was honored in GRTC buses across Metro Richmond Thursday.

58 years ago, she made history, refusing to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Alabama bus to a white passenger.

In a tribute to "the mother of the civil rights movement," the first seat on every bus was reserved in her memory, with a special sign. The head signs of each bus also featured a message for Parks.
