TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa Sen. Kevin Matthews is starting a bipartisan task force to study transportation possibilities in Tulsa, including a high-speed train between Tulsa and Oklahoma City.
An Oklahoma law passed in 1996 says the state has to start passenger rail between Tulsa and Oklahoma counties - but there is no deadline.
Matthews says the task force will figure out how to pay for it with a public/private partnership.
The task force will also study light rail, starting with a route from the airport to downtown Tulsa and along the IDL. After that, routes could be added to the suburbs.
