Why is the focus of this plan on transit and not on other modes of transportation?
Per House Bill 1365, the Oklahoma Public Transit Policy Plan shall be “all-inclusive of the public transit systems in the state” and should focus on guiding future collaboration and coordination efforts among these systems, as well as state agencies with an interest in public transit.
Why are you using 2017 Census data instead of 2018?
The study team used the most recent data available at the time the analysis was conducted. Census data from 2018 became available after the team had processed the 2017 data. Population and demographic information used in the Market Analysis report is based on the US Census American Community Survey, using 2013-2017 five-year estimates.
