Tulsa is one of the first 12 cities in the country to get the Rapid Transit lines.

The city replaced 49 stops on Peoria with these new small stations that will provide some protection from the weather.

The buses run along Peoria Avenue from 54th Street North to 81st Street South. They will be able to reduce travel times, and the services will run every 15 minutes.

The stations have real-time arrival signs, sheltered seats, bicycle racks, and the buses will have on-board Wi-Fi.

The stops also offer walk-on, level boarding of the bus without steps.
