Streetcar fares in Oklahoma City take effect Saturday
OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City’s new streetcar system is adopting a seven-day schedule beginning this month in an effort to improve consistency and reliability of service.
The Oklahoman reports the decision comes as Embark transit prepares to collect a base fare of $1 for a one-hour pass or $3 for a 24-hour pass starting Saturday. A half-off deal will run throughout February for passes bought on the mobile app.
The streetcar debuted in December with plans for regular service Monday through Saturday and limited, event-driven operations on Sundays.
Transit authorities ran the system on Sundays for the first seven weekends at Mayor David Holt’s insistence.
Streetcars will operate 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays through March after a break this weekend to get traffic signal priority equipment functioning.
