The Public Transit system in Oklahoma is supposedly in the bottom two in the United States.

As OKC Public Transit has never had a line item budget to support itself, there has been something of a goose chase over the last 3 years to review the system, revamp the system while making zero changes in the faulty funding structure and force feed the system a Trolley-Tram system it cannot sustain, though the original function of the Trolley-Tram is slated to be paid by one or more local corporations paying taxes forward.

The persons listed as retiring from their positions are slated to be gone just prior to the Oklahoma City Mayoral Elections in March 2014. The elections are populated by 2 men of very different philosophical trajectories, and two very different skill sets.
