As a point of comparison, Tulsa Transit bus service doesn't run evenings (except for a few special night lines), and typical headways are 30 minutes or longer between buses.

The third company, Charles Page's Sand Springs Railway, connected downtown Sand Springs with Archer Street in downtown Tulsa. A half-page ad in the Sunday, October 16, 1921, Tulsa Daily World, says that the TSR runs from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.)

I wish I could take the bus in to work. But our transit system is so awful. There is no way for me to arrive to my job before 7am, when the work day begins.

I guess the City of Tulsa assumes everyone's taking the bus out to get some ice cream?
