The Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG) is hosting a series of public meetings throughout the Central Oklahoma region to encourage feedback and comments for the Commuter Corridors Study, which is a comprehensive alternatives analysis of potential future transit modes and alignments within three corridors in the greater metropolitan area.
Project consultants with URS Corporation, will be available to answer questions and receive comments at the session. The open houses are come and go from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. There will be a primary presentation at 6:30 p.m. at the Norman (South), Edmond (North) and Midwest City (East) meetings , where the study team will describe the planning and research process. The Bricktown meeting will be held from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., with a presentation at 5 p.m.
The format is the same for all four meetings; however, local emphasis on each individual corridor will be the focus of the three regional meetings.

The Commuter Corridors Study, also known as CentralOK!go, 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.
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.
