LANTA is honoring a civil rights icon by dedicating bus seats.

The transportation authority held a ceremony Tuesday in honor of Rosa Parks.

One seat on each of the buses now displays a plaque in memory of the civil rights activist.

Parks' refusal to move from a bus seat in Montgomery Alabama in 1955 sparked a bus boycott and was a major event in the civil rights movement.
