Tulsa Transit is making a new effort to expand service and shorten the wait for a bus.

The transit service is asking the city council to help match federal funding that could cut the average wait to 30 minutes and add service on Sundays.

MTTA says it would take $14.5 million a year to build up the service to that level.

"And we can increase viable access for a lot of people who may not have the transportation options that you and I have and provide direct access to employment if you will, or education," Baul said public transit is one of the emerging themes coming from the vision planning process, but no decisions have been made on how how much money will get.
