Run by the Jacksonville Transportation Authority, the bus system has stops all along the main road near the Tulsa Welding School campus, and can take you most anywhere in town. Fares are reasonable, and you can even get a bus pass card that is electronically re-loadable so you don’t have to keep bringing change with you whenever you want to ride.
