Tulsa Transit Launces Pilot Shuttle Program to Bixby Outreach Center Through September
Tulsa Transit has launched a pilot program for a “Tuesday shopping” shuttle to the Bixby Outreach Center (BOC) that runs till Sept. 29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Tuesday.
The BOC, located in the heart of downtown Bixby, has a wide variety of food, toiletries, clothes and more for families.
The free shuttle is available for anyone in the community and will circulate on Tuesdays every 20-30 minutes from the Walmart at 111th and Memorial to the BOC. Face masks and social distancing are required while riding and shopping. Limit 1-2 family members per trip.
“We are so excited for the partnership between the BOC and Tulsa Transit,” said Missy Brumley, executive director of the BOC. “This shopper service will be a game changer in our community and give the people who live south of the river access to more shopping options to help stretch their money further.”
“Through this pilot program, we will gather data and continue to identify ways we can better serve our riders and provide them the service they need,” said Ted Rieck, Tulsa Transit General Manager. “We hope to further our partnership with the BOC and other organizations in our community with this type of service.”
