Transit Authority Approves Funds for Gathering Place Shuttle
A Gathering Place shuttle is tentatively set to resume service on Memorial Day weekend. The Tulsa Transit Authority yesterday approved a shuttle contract with First Transit.
Naaja Jefferies, Director of Contracted Services, said attendance at The Gathering Place has exceeded expectations since its September 2018 opening.
"For 2021 there is even less parking available on site. Further, people without access to personal transportation need access to the park," said Jefferies.
Through summer weekends the shuttle will run from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Weekdays it will run from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Expected stops include Denver Avenue Station, Tulsa Community College Parking lot, and Boston Avenue Methodist Church parking lot.
The total cost of operating the shuttle until June 2022 is not to exceed $147,000. The shuttle is funded through the 2016 Vision Tulsa referendum.
