Criteria for City Design in Regard to Transportation

Before any more mileage of urban interstate highways is built, Tulsa must have the opportunity to plan and adequately finance integrated transportation systems of its own choice.

Alternate forms of transportation, such as buses, trains, moving sidewalks, bicycles and street-cars, must be developed into comprehensive transit systems for our city.

Transportation systems dependant on public financing should be publicly controlled. Transportation should be considered a public service whose operating costs are subsidized as are the operating costs of all public services.

Transportation planning and construction must weigh all social and environmental costs. Social, economic, and environmental impact statements must be required.

Continuous and widespread community education and participation must be insured through the planning, development, and operation of any transit program.

Coordination between all agencies, affecting transportation must be insured.
