The Central Transportation and Parking Authority (MetroTransit) has been hit with a wave of complaitns regarding its downtown trolley service – one of the nine original Metropolitan Area Projects.
Tourists say the service is unreliable. Downtown residents say the routes are designed to discourage their use by locals. Office workers say the rides are too far apart to be used at lunch time.
So you’d think COTPA would be trying to upgrade its performance, right?
So, here’s their latest accomplishment: they covered up their route maps in Bricktown with a decal encouraging folks to call 235-ride for information about the orange line – a route designed to serve not downtown or Bricktown, but rather the I-40/Meridian hotel corridor.
This notice also assumes every visitor has a cell phone handy or knows where to find a pay phone.
