What is BRT?
BRT is a high performance and rapid transit mode for buses combining physical and operating improvements into a permanently integrated transit system. BRT is cost-effective, efficient and has been proven to increase transit use with improved service frequencies, travel time and reliability
How Does BRT Work?

BRT is designed to provide enhanced bus service in key corridors by reducing travel times and providing a high level of passenger amenities. While BRT operations differ throughout the country, they all have a few common elements which will be incorporated in the Tulsa AERO system:

  • Specially designed stations and buses with unique graphics and name referred to as the AERO
  • Frequent service – The Peoria AERO BRT will operate 7 days a week every 15 minutes weekday and 20-30 minutes on weekend.

New technology:

  • Real-time schedule information displays at stations

Level boarding. Stations will be designed to be level with doors on the buses, so there are no steps to navigate. Simply walk or roll right onto the bus

Improved station lighting

Improved pedestrian and bicycle connections to stations

Bicycle amenities at stations

Why BRT?

Plays a vital role in connecting people to their jobs and businesses to their customers

Sparks economic development for our city

Cost effective, efficient and has proven to increase transit use

Investment in the community

Why Peoria Avenue?

This high-capacity transit line will connect people to jobs and many major destinations including Downtown, Cherry Street, Brookside, Pearl District, BOK Center, Tulsa Tech Peoria Campus, Shoppes on Peoria, Oral Roberts University, Cityplex Towers, Centennial Park, and the Denver Avenue station

One in seven of the city’s residents and 20% of jobs are within a 10-minute walk of the corridor

The corridor carries more passengers than any other existing transit route in the city.

The corridor was the top transit priority in the 2010 Tulsa Comprehensive Plan, PlaniTulsa
