Tulsa Transit will officially launch its new service in Turley on Tuesday after complaints from residents that the current bus stop in the area was too far south.
Tulsa Transit says the new shuttle will connect residents with key spots in Turley, like Warehouse Market, Dollar General and the Tulsa Health Department. It'll also provide service to O'Brien Park for the first time in 15 years. The shuttle will run six days a week from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. and is free of charge.
Transit leaders say funding from the CARES Act played a big role in launching this new service.
"The money that we received from them is great. It's really put us in a position to make investments in the system that we've long wanted to make," said Tulsa Transit GM Ted Rieck.
There's a ribbon cutting ceremony for the service scheduled for 9:00 Tuesday morning at O'Brien Park. For more information about Tulsa Transit visit www.tulsatransit.org.
