Tulsa Transit moves to reduce the wait time at Tulsa bus stops. Six additional buses have been pressed into service on a half dozen-existing routes. Tulsa Transit General Manager Bill Cartwright says that will cut the wait time at some of the more popular routes.
The routes are 100, 112, 210, 221, 318 and 471. Cartwright says those routes are scattered across the Tulsa metro area.
The goal is no more than a 30-minute wait at Tulsa Transit bus stops. The new service started yesterday and Cartwright says it is already making an impact. The overall wait time has been cut by 22%.
Cartwright says they reviewed ridership and the timing of the buses in selecting the routes.
