Changes are coming to Tulsa Transit. The city is cutting the bus system's budget by 10 percent starting in July.

Tulsa Transit is proposing two possible options. They say both are designed to have the smallest negative impact on customers.

Option one will reduce routes only. Option two will reduce some routes and increase the daily fare by a quarter.

Both options will eliminate the Nightline service which means buses will stop running at 6:30 p.m.

"I have to work until 7:30 in the evening, so how am I supposed to get home at 7:30 in the evening? I have no clue because this is what I have. Tulsa Transit is what I've got," said bus rider Gwen McIntosh.
