Quote of the Day 9/17/2015

“I hear Tulsans saying it’s time to weigh the cost of building a robust transit system against the cost and disadvantages we create for ourselves by not offering one. Millennials in Tulsa postponing home buying while having no option to rid themselves of car expenses are passionate in their support of public transit as are older citizens facing isolation when driving is no longer an option. Employers and employees whose productivity and quality of life are hampered by a transit system whose service runs every 45 minutes, every 90 minutes or not at all on weekends, feel the economic hardship of Tulsa’s system where it hurts the most … in the pocketbook.”
