Last month, Sen. Jim Inhofe announced that Oklahoma City is a recipient of a $14.3 million federal BUILD grant to implement bus rapid transit (BRT) along Northwest Expressway and North Classen Boulevard. The funds will help connect businesses and residents near the eight-mile segment to the core of Oklahoma City, including other EMBARK routes and the newly opened Oklahoma City Streetcar.
The impact of the OKC Streetcar is already being felt ahead of its Dec. 14 launch.
As we move toward the launch of the OKC Streetcar and usher in an exciting new era of public transit in Oklahoma City, letís take a moment to examine the positive effects strategic, multi-modal transportation investments have had on company and employee recruitment.
The City of Oklahoma City maintains more than 3,500 miles of roadways within the city limits.
Oklahoma City is receiving a federal grant to develop a bus rapid transit line between downtown and the northwest side, Mayor David Holt said Thursday.
Mark Dec. 14 on your calendars because it will be a historic day for our city as the Oklahoma City Streetcar officially opens for business.
The cityís new downtown streetcar will track a lot closer to ridersí expectations of timed stops thanks to a gift of computer coding from U.S. Fleet Tracking.
