At noon on January 21st the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG) conducted a webinar on the Central Oklahoma Commuter Corridors Study (also known as the as CentralOK!go). If you were unable to attend the webinar, the entire presentation deck is available in both PDF and Microsoft PowerPoint format.
Additionally, the webinar was recorded and will be made available publicly for anyone wishing to hear the presentations made by consultants as well as follow-up questions provided by citizens.
Project consultants with URS Corporation described the planning and research process and answered questions and received comments during the session. The webinar was designed to accept questions from the audience either through a phone or web portal.
The Commuter Corridors Study will consider multiple modes of public transportation for commuter service. Examples include commuter rail, light rail, bus rapid transit and express bus. A locally preferred alternative (mode and alignment) with the right fit for the riders and the region will be selected for each corridor later in the study, which is scheduled to conclude in June 2014. While the study will also examine funding options, there is no current revenue source available for a build-out of any recommendations.
The North Corridor stretches for 14 miles between Edmond and downtown Oklahoma City, the East Corridor is a 10-mile corridor that extends between downtown and Midwest City/Tinker Air Force Base and the South Corridor is a 17-mile stretch that extends to Moore and Norman.
