On Metropolitan Transportation Authority buses in New York City and Long Island, the seat behind the driver will be symbolically reserved for the late Parks, whose act of disobedience and subsequent arrest prompted a bus boycott and proved a major turning point in the country’s civil rights movement.

Above the seat there will be a poster of Parks, who died Oct. 24 at age 92, with the saying, "It All Started on a Bus."
