Proposition 2: Streets and Transportation

proposal-2

SUMMARY

This portion of the Vision Tulsa plan will support streets, traffic and public transportation efforts throughout the city.

Because our need for well-maintained streets is ongoing, a portion of the tax will be made permanent for continued investment.

This portion of the Vision plan will ensure more reliable public transportation service such as seven-day bus schedules and two high-quality bus rapid transit (BRT) lines.

Investing in streets and public transit will cut travel time and will allow workers to more easily get to their jobs. It also will allow families to spend more time together, and allow them to reduce their transportation costs.

A key element of the BRT system is significantly enhanced stations along both corridors that enhance safety and beautify the streetscape.

 

PACKAGE DETAILS

The streets and transportation plan creates:

  • Two much-needed bus rapid transit routes, which gives two Tulsa communities safe and efficient transportation to jobs, healthcare and groceries. Together, the two BRT lines are within a 10-minute walk of 30% of the city’s residents and 35% of the city’s jobs.
