Tulsa Transit http://publicradiotulsa.org en An Update on Tulsa's Fast Forward Plan: It's All About BRT (as in, Bus Rapid Transit) http://publicradiotulsa.org/post/update-tulsas-fast-forward-plan-its-all-about-brt-bus-rapid-transit <p>On this edition of our show, we get an update on Tulsa's Regional Transit System Plan, which is also known as Fast Forward. The plan was adopted last year, in October of 2011, and operations are now moving forward on the first major enhancement to the current Tulsa Transit set-up. That first enhancement is a proposed BRT, or Bus Rapid Transit, that would run along the lengthy Peoria/Riverside Corridor (which is 20+ miles long, from Far North to Far South Tulsa).
