Free Bus Fares Offered Saturday
(Fayetteville, N.C.) — In honor of Black History Month, Fayetteville Area System of Transit (FAST) bus riders have the opportunity to ride for free on Saturday, Feb. 23 on Route 12. OHOP Clothing Brand – which stands for Others Helping Others Prosper – is paying for a total of $100 in bus fares beginning at 10 a.m. at Bronco Square, which is the shopping center across from Fayetteville State University on Murchison Road.
Flyers with Claudette Colvin and Rosa Parks, who refused to give up their seats on bus rides during the civil rights movement, have been posted on social media sites to promote the bus rides. The theme for the day is “They Rode For Us…Now We Ride For Them.”
