On August 1st, TPS and Tulsa Transit joined together to offer high schoolers rides Monday through Friday.
Since the partnership began, on average, 2,000 students ride Tulsa Transit each week with a one-day peak of 454 students.
Debbie Ruggles, Tulsa Transit assistant director, said, "Absolutely free, all they have to do is show their student ID."
TULSA, Oklahoma -
Some high school students are taking advantage of free rides on Tulsa Transit buses.
It’s allowing them to get to work or school, but, for some, it’s giving them the opportunity to join clubs or sports that they couldn't join in the past because of transportation issues.
The partnership between Tulsa Transit and Tulsa Public Schools has only been going on for four months, but we’re just now starting to learn if students have been using the buses and what impact it's making.
