OKLAHOMA CITY – The Regional Transportation Authority of Central Oklahoma (RTA) is seeking input from residents on potential high-capacity transit connecting downtown Oklahoma City to the west towards Yukon and Mustang as well as a connection to the airport.
The project team will host a public open house to gather feedback to inform the development of alternatives (or routes) for the RTA’s West and Airport Corridors.
Residents are invited to attend the open house this Wednesday, August 16 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Community Impact Center at Oklahoma State University – Oklahoma City (OSU-OKC) at 903 N Portland Ave., Oklahoma City, OK 73107.
Residents can also complete the corresponding survey here.
The West and Airport Corridors were identified in the 2021 Transit System Plan as two regional corridors to be explored for high-capacity transit routes.
Like the process recently completed for the North/South and East corridors, the West and Airport corridors will be developed through the Alternatives Analysis process.
“As we move forward through the Alternatives Analysis process for the West and Airport corridors, community and resident input is critical,” RTA Owner’s Representative Kathryn Holmes said.
“The project team is seeking input on key destinations within the corridors to gain further understanding on what factors will drive future ridership.”
The West Corridor will connect downtown Oklahoma City directly to the west towards Yukon and Mustang. The Airport Corridor will connect Will Rogers World Airport with downtown Oklahoma City.
The map below shows the corridors currently under study and other planned corridors where Locally Preferred Alternatives have been determined.
