Gov. Kevin State and Oklahoma Transportation Secretary Tim Gatz recently spoke to the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber on the transportation plan for Oklahoma’s future. Here is link to the article as reported by Janice Francis-Smith in The Journal Record.

Sec Gatz said:

Amtrak’s Heartland Flyer train service connecting Oklahoma City with points in Texas is one of the most used routes on Amtrak’s system, Gatz noted. Future connections hoped for joining the Heartland Flyer with routes north in Kansas and in southern Texas would place Oklahoma at the heart of a growing regional infrastructure.

“Having those transportation alternatives is really important to a state that’s growing like Oklahoma and metropolitan areas growing like Oklahoma City is,” Gatz said.
