A Bay Area decades old tribute to the civil rights era will end next month.

The Freedom Train commemorates the Martin Luther King, Junior lead march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama in 1965. The last 30 years passengers have taken the Caltrain ride from San Jose's Diridon station to San Francisco to commemorate that civil rights movement. But, officials say this coming January 19th's ride will be the last because of lack of community interest.
