The boycott affected the people because they had to start walking a long time to get to work because they weren’t taking the bus, and they had to deal with the white people who would make fun of them, Eventually the bus company was losing money so they had to let the blacks ride otherwise there would be no bus transportation at all.
This event impacts today because now anyone can ride the bus and it doesn’t matter your race.
However, we still see boycotts happening in transportation today with uber.
Uber refused to stop giving rides to immigrants at the JFK airport during the "immigration protest"
People thought uber was taking advantage of the situation and started the hashtag #deleteuber , and that began the boycott.
