Dorothy Carter trusted Twin Cities public transportation throughout her 94 years.
Carter was described by her son as a “fiercely independent” woman who never had a driver’s license. But that didn’t stop her from getting to her destination.
“If there was the need to get around, she would take the bus and go,” said William Carter III.
Last Thursday, her son embarked on a Metro Transit trip with a sign and an urn containing his mother’s remains. He wanted to take her on one last ride to honor her life and the autonomy public transit gave her.
