If you visiting Tulsa and do not have a car, chances are you will be using Tulsa Transit to get around. They are the local bus that runs up and down the major roads of the city making sure people can get to work and to shopping. It is just like any bus system in any American city, really.
The important thing to know is that they operate a hub system in Tulsa. They have one downtown on Denver St and the other is out on Memorial Ave by I-44 and Highway 64. Most buses come and go out of the one downtown though.
How does it work on Tulsa Transit?
The first question you have to ask is how you want to pay the fare. If you are traveling alot in a day, you should get the day pass for $3.75. However, if in town for a few days, pick up the weekly pass for $14. It might sound like alot but it really is not. That will get anywhere you need to go while you are backpacking around the city.
After that, you just find the bus you need on their website or using a map. The last thing you need to do is get on the right bus and travel to whatever you want to see that day. It really is that simple.
They do not run on Sundays
Tulsa is the buckle of the bible belt. Due to this, Tulsa is the largest city in America that does not operate transit services on Sunday. This can be a pain because it puts you a day of doing little, walking or paying for taxi cabs.
No matter what you do, you need to plan ahead for the lack of bus service on the Sundays while you are visiting.
