Report: Regional Okla. system possible in next few years

Posted on August 20, 2014

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma Gazette reported it could be more than a decade until Oklahoma City has a truly regional public transportation system, but it’s also already well down the road toward creating one, with a vote possibly taking place in the next few years.

The area has already passed legislation allowing for the creation of a regional transit authority, has researched routes for streetcars and commuter rail, and has garnered support from various city leaders.

The plan calls for commuter rail service from Norman and Edmond into downtown Oklahoma City. There are also streetcar lines extending from downtown east, along with significant enhancements to local bus service. For the full story, click here.
