  • How bad is Tulsa’s ozone problem? Chart looks at past 12 years. Red Lines are EPA’s National ozone standard. Blue trend line is our ozone ‘trend’.These plot the highest 3-year average (‘design value’) . Tulsa’s central and north monitors are tied for state’s highest design value at 0.080ppm.2013…?
  • Measured in quadrillion BTUs61% of petroleum (measured by energy) comes from imports70% of petroleum energy is used for transportationOnly 25% of that energy is converted into useful energy. The rest is lost to heat and efficiency
  • 75% of BRT lines had ridership less than 10,000/day 31% had ridership of less than 5,000/day
  • Paratransit trips: 15,000 trips/year @ $23/trip
