For the first time, Tulsa is offering Sunday Bus Service, paid for by an increase in sales tax.
“For years Tulsa Transit bus passengers have asked for public transportation on Sundays,” said Tulsa Transit Board Chair Marquay Baul. “For those of us who have cars it is almost impossible for us to imagine what it would be like to have no ability to leave our homes on Sunday without depending on someone else. Sunday transit service truly will be life changing for our customers.”
Using smaller buses, Tulsa Transit Sunday daytime routes will be the same routes that operate during the evening Monday through Saturday. Sunday Service fares will be the same as for any other day. Hours of operation will be from 8:30 a.m. until approximately 7 p.m. The Call Center will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
The Sunday Service will be a fixed-route deviation service. Buses will run on regular routes, but will deviate up to ¾-mile off the route to pick up or drop off passengers who schedule a deviation in advance.
