What? Still no proposals to serve the rest of the city? What a joke! Lawton has better bus coverage than OKC does. I would venture to say that Oklahoma City has the worst bus system of any medium to large city in the United States. You cannot even ride the bus to Tinker, where more than 20,000 people are employed.
You can call it Metro Transit, Mass Trans, or what ever they use to be called and they have never been worth riding. They deliberately put together half hearted routes that are not dependable so no one will ride them and then use the low ridership as an excuse not to invest in a real bus system. What good is the trolley downtown if you cannot go anywhere on them?
Every major artery in the metro should have regular bus routes that require no longer than one hour wait up until at least 10:00 PM. If they were to seriously do this consistently, I guarantee you there would be lots of people riding the bus. Not just poor people. I have lived in several cities that all income levels rode the bus but then again they had a real bus system that could be depended upon. Looks like we have the same old non committal half baked bus system plans for the future.
