Union Station, the New I-40 & the Future of Mass Transit in OKC
Part VIII: Expanding Rail Service (Apr 06, 2007)

On this week's installment of our series, we pay a visit to the Norman Train Depot to talk with Evan Stair about his group Passenger Rail Oklahoma's campaign to expand Amtrak's Heartland Flyer route north from Oklahoma City to make connections in Kansas and Missouri. We also speak with University of Oklahoma Professor of Regional and City Planning Dr. Richard Marshment about mass transit options in Central Oklahoma's future.

View a map of Passenger Rail Oklahoma's recommendations for expanded passenger train service in Oklahoma and the region.

Over the past eight weeks, we've spent several programs in this series examining the controversy over the I-40 Crosstown re-location plan. But how would the new highway affect downtown Oklahoma City's future growth and development, and what would come of the footprint of the current expressway? Find out and get your questions answered when the City of Oklahoma City holds its next Core to Shore public meeting from 6-8 pm on Tuesday, April 10th. The meeting will take place in rooms 16-18 of the Cox Convention Center. We'll have a report-back on next week's show.
