High School Students To Benefit From TPS, Tulsa Transit Partnership

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa Public Schools and the Metropolitan Tulsa Transit Authority are set to announce a partnership that will benefit high school students.

The partnership could save the district money and ensure students in 9-12 grades have more ways to get to school.

Last week, INCOG transportation coordinator James Wagner told News On 6 his mission is to bring tech experts, TPS and Tulsa Transit together.

His plan was to create data technology that could be used to build an app, which would allow students to find the best, fastest Tulsa Transit Route to and from school.

The plan would not affect any school bus routes. All buses would run as normal, it would just give families and students another option.

Tulsa Public Schools leaders say they are excited about the opportunity and will have more information to announce at a press conference Wednesday.

Superintendent Dr. Deborah Gist and MTTA President and CEO Bill Cartwright and others will speak Wednesday at 9 a.m. at Memorial High School.
