What: HART Yukon Transfer Center Reopening Ceremony, Tribute to Rosa Parks
When: Friday, Nov. 30, 10 a.m.
Where: HART Yukon Transfer Center, 400 E. Yukon St., Tampa
On Dec. 1, 1955, Rosa Parks’ act of defiance changed the course of history and inspired us all.
HART will host a re-opening ceremony to mark the completion of the renovated Yukon Transfer Center, the first HART transfer center that opened in 1983; but in honor of Rosa Parks Day celebrated the next day, HART will also unveil Rosa Parks bus plaques that will be permanently installed on all HART buses. These bus plaques are dedicated to the legacy of Rosa Parks and the “It All Started on a Bus” campaign that pays tribute to the important role that transit played during the civil rights movement, as well as today to achieve social justice in communities throughout the country. Every day in Hillsborough County, thousands of residents without reliable transportation options depend on HART to arrive to work, see their doctor, and attend school.
This event is free and open to the public. Community leaders, elected officials, HART board members and staff will be present during the ceremony. In addition, the latest class of 18 bus operator graduates will be present for this event.
