Everyone can now access the recording of the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments’ Wednesday, May 28th webinar conducted as part of the Central Oklahoma Commuter Corridors Study to evaluate the feasibility of regional transit. Additionally, the presentation used is now available for download.
The May 28th webinar was the second and final webinar for the ongoing regional transit study, walking attendees through the planning and research process with detailed analyses of alignments, high capacity transit modes, potential system costs, projected ridership and technical feasibility of the three corridors (North, East and South).
The corridors assessed were based on the 2005 Regional Fixed Guideway Study. The North Corridor stretches for 14 miles between Edmond and downtown Oklahoma City, the East Corridor is a 10-mile corridor that extends from downtown through Del City to Midwest City/Tinker Air Force Base and the South Corridor is a 17-mile stretch that extends to Moore and Norman.
It is important to note that while the study does assess potential funding options, there is no current revenue source available for a build-out of any recommendations.
The Central Oklahoma Commuter Corridors Study is expected to be completed at the end of June, with a full report to be available in the coming months. Until then, visit CentralOKgo.org for updates, sign up for our email list and watch our first webinar from January 21st to learn more.
