The estimated 50,000 people enjoying downtown Oklahoma City on this upcoming Fourth of July weekend will also enjoy free public transportation. Beginning July 1, Platt College is covering the cost of any and all riders on the city trolleys for a year.
"Because our campuses are all over, we think it is important to support public transportation," said Kim Lamb, director of admissions at Platt College. "We know people are looking for ways to stretch their budget, and we saw an opportunity to make things a little easier on Oklahoma City residents and workers by saying, 'the fare is on us.'"
The downtown trolley's summer schedule (May 1 "? Sept. 30) runs 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday through Tuesday, and 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.
