OkTA Moves Transit Forward in Oklahoma.
People ride public transit for two reasons: 1. To make money or 2. To spend money. That's why public transit is an economic growth program with quality of life benefits.
OkTA is excited to partner with the Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA) to host a joint conference and ROADEO in Oklahoma City on May 21–25, 2023.
Our members are being given a special "OkTA Only" discount! In addition to learning and networking, OkTA members will have access to the OkTA Hospitality Suite to network and relax between sessions.
Click here for the preliminary schedule and register today using the button below. To receive our special negotiated rate, use the code OTA2023, which is exclusive to current OkTA members!
This code can be used for both EXPO registration ($450) and ROADEO registration ($250). The discount will prevail only for the base fee of $135 off of EXPO registration OR $175 off ROADEO registration. This is not applicable for enhanced sessions.
OkTA DRIVES TRANSIT FORWARD
RESERVE THE ROC BUS
The Rolling Oklahoma Classroom (ROC) is designed to enhance awareness of public transit options in rural, tribal, and urban communities. It is made possible by a Federal Transit Administration grant.
It provides hands-on safety and security training for transit workers and addresses human trafficking awareness and prevention.
It is available to every community, tribal nation, and public event in Oklahoma at no cost.
OkTA ADVOCACY PLATFORM
The following key transit issues impact our ability to best serve our communities:

In 2023, OkTA is seeking a line-item state transit funding allocation of no less than $10.7 million that will help us address federal match gap challenges and operational shortfalls.
