CityLink reserves bus seats in honor of Rosa Parks

PEORIA, Ill. (WEEK) — CityLink is celebrating Rosa Parks’ 106th birthday by saving her a seat on every fixed route bus.

The late civil rights activist became famous when she refused to move to the back of the bus for a white passenger in Montgomery, Alabama in 1955. Her act led to a boycott of the Montgomery bus system, and was a watershed moment in the 1960s civil rights movement against segregation.

CityLink also reserves honors Parks year-round with a special yellow seat on Bus 2243.
