Citizens Seek to Save Tulsa Transit

KWGS News/TGOV

There was little room in the Tulsa City Council Chambers last night.  A full house of citizens turned out to voice their concern regarding proposed budget cuts to Tulsa Transit.

One-after-one the citizens lined up to urge the council to find another way to balance the budget. Many of those speaking have disabilities and public transportation is their only way to travel around town.

Mayor Bartlett's proposed budget cuts would reduce bus frequency and increase fares for routes and the LIFT program. The popular "Nightline Service" could also be trimmed.

The council has until the end of next month to tweak the Mayor's spending plan.
