UGOTTA BKIDDING, 4/17/2011 - 11:39am "I want a public transit system that works for me! For the 4th or 5th time in my adult life I actually looked at the schedules for the bus system in Tulsa. Why? Because I drive a Tahoe and it gets about 15 miles to the gallon. At this point I am spending 80 to 100 dollars a week on gasoline, and I cannot afford it. This week I have to decide between my natural gas bill and gas to get to work. UGH!
The major disfunction of the Tulsa Transit system is the same as it has always been -- the hours. People who have 9-5 jobs are about the only people who the schedule can accomodate.
I work as support for a school distric and I have to be there before school and after school. Just slightly outside of the normal work day and still I cannot get to work at 6:30 in the morning using the transit system, and I cannot get home if I get off work at 5:30. How crazy and useless is that?
You cannot build a business if you are not open when people need your service! I would much rather pay to ride the bus now, we are talking a savings of 75 to 80 a week!!! But Tulsa doesn't have a functioning public transit system. It is the perfect time for that to change!
