Free rides extended for OKC Streetcar
On Friday, Oklahoma City Mayor David Holt announced that the Oklahoma City Streetcar would be free to ride through February 1.
“The remarkable ridership so far demonstrates the excitement our community has for this new amenity,” Holt wrote on social media Friday morning.
“In just three weeks, we’ve had the opening, rain, ice & New Year’s Eve. In all of that, there really hasn’t been time for passengers & operators to experience ‘regular’ service for an extended period & there certainly hasn’t been time to properly phase in fare collection.”
Free rides were scheduled to end after Saturday.
