MST Offers Free Fares In Honor of Rosa Parks, Wednesday, December 1st

MST is offering free bus fares, systemwide in honor of Rosa Parks, on Wednesday, December 1st.

On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks changed the course of history and inspired us all. She bravely refused to give up her seat to a white passenger on a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama. This act led to the Montgomery bus boycott, an eleven-month struggle to desegregate the buses in Montgomery. Under the leadership of Martin Luther King, Jr., the boycott resulted in the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that public bus segregation is unconstitutional.

MST is proud to continue recognizing and appreciating the courage of Rosa Parks and the change her action brought about, and like Rosa Parks, we are committed to making transportation available to all members of the community and maintaining and supporting equity in everything we do.

For more information, visit mst.org or call 1-888-MST-BUS1 (1-888-678-2871) toll free. For RealTime bus arrival information, text “Next” and your four-digit bus stop ID (example, “Next 9103”) to 25370, call 1-888-MST-BUS1 with your four-digit bus stop ID, download the free Transit App, or use Google Maps.
