Oklahoma City transit changing name, increasing service

Oklahoma City transit changing name, increasing service.

Before it was EMBARK, it was METRO Transit (well, I guess it’s not actually EMBARK yet).  Before it was METRO Transit, it was MassTrans.  Before it was MassTrans, I believe it was just COTPA (Central Oklahoma Transit and Parking Authority).  Before it was COTPA, it was the Oklahoma Transportation Company, a private company.  Before it was the Oklahoma Transportation Company, it was the Oklahoma Railway Company.  Before it was the Oklahoma Railway Company … it was actually several different street railway companies, interurban railway companies, and some companies just set up to build the lines and I really don’t have a good handle on that.

But, hey, WiFi.

  1. I got an email about this. They are supposed to be providing better routes (ie simplified and more relevant) and shorter wait time (at least for some). I’m glad it is being improved. There is still a long way to go to making it as effective as it should be. This is a good first step. I’m going to try it out this summer 🙂

    1. There is, apparently, one corridor served by multiple routes, that combined will have service every 15 minutes. You can’t get to all the possible destinations on every bus, but within that corridor, that’s pretty darn good!
