Mary Wallace Drove into History

Mary Wallace broke barriers when she was the first female transit bus driver for Chicago. In 1974, she turns heads when she decided to remain relentless in her quest for change.

“I used to work for the Planning & Placement Center when I was going to college, and we had job orders for CTA bus drivers. So I decided I wanted to check this out for myself, and I did. I went for three years, and they kept saying no”…

Of course she got mixed reactions when she finally was hired for the CTA position. But you already know she didn’t let that stop her. She worked for Chicago’s Transit Authority for 33 years before she retired. Salute Queen. #blackgirlmagic
