James Wagner, City of Tulsa director of finance and CEO; Kara Joy McKee, District 4 city councilor; Mayor G.T. Bynum; Ted Rieck, Tulsa Transit general manager; Vanessa Hall-Harper, District 1 city councilor; and Phil Lakin, District 8 city councilor

"Moving forward, Tulsa will be one of the first dozen cities in the country to have bus-rapid-transit. By having this, what we are going to do is open up the city in a way it’s never been accessible to people before, starting from 56th Street North all the way down to 81st Street. People will have access to job opportunities, to educational opportunities, to health care opportunities that they’ve never had before."

 

— Mayor G.T. Bynum at a press conference Jan. 15 announcing the groundbreaking of Aero BRT, a bus-rapid-transit system coming to South Peoria Avenue. Aero BRT is expected to open late this summer.
