Tulsa Transit is hosting a virtual public meeting today to get public input on their plans for a long-term service in Turley.
Tulsa Transit says the new shuttle will run on 30 minute intervals, which will cut wait times in half.
It’ll make stops at Warehouse Market, the Tulsa Health Department and O'Brien Park, which hasn’t had service in 15 years.
It’ll also connect Route 1-10 and the Aero.
Right now, the plan is to start the new shuttle service in August.
News On 6 told you a few months ago when the transit authority reduced services in that area.
Drew Myers with Tulsa Transit says they’re using this meeting to fine-tune their plans according to what the people of Turley need.
“People became vocal and said ‘what about us’ and we realized, of course, this area does need service; so, we’re trying to find something that is not a temporary solution that’ll work better for the people of North Tulsa and also have the ability. A lot of people travel from Tulsa up to the Warehouse Market up north. So that way, there’s a better connectivity for everyone up there” Myers said.
Thursday's meeting is at noon, but they’ll accept public input until May 21st.
