OK Public Transit Survey for States First Transit Plan


Highlights of the Oklahoma Transportation Commission’s Monday, Feb. 3, meeting include reports on the Oklahoma Department of Transportation’s ongoing effort to get public input on the state’s first transit plan and future interstate projects in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, as well as an update on a national initiative to combat human trafficking and announcement of federal grant opportunities. Contracts were awarded for projects on I-35 in Garvin, Kay and McClain counties, as well as US-77 in Kay County, US-69 in Pittsburg County and SH-20 in Tulsa County.

Secretary of Transportation and ODOT Executive Director Tim Gatz updated commissioners on several ongoing efforts to get public input on transportation programs and projects. As the agency continues to develop the Oklahoma Public Transit Policy Plan in partnership with the Oklahoma Transit Association, ODOT is asking the public to help identify transit needs and preferences by taking a short online survey, which is available through March 4. Additionally, ODOT has been hosting regional stakeholder meetings with transit providers and users, with two more meetings scheduled for Feb. 6 in Ponca City and Feb. 10 in Woodward. The survey and information about the meetings can be found at www.oktransitplan.org.

“Our public transit survey is available and we want everyone’s feedback, whether in rural or urban areas, to help us develop the transit plan.” Gatz said. “This is all to better understand who is using transit, where and why they’re traveling and what we can work on with transit providers to enhance the level of service they’re providing.”
