Social Security personnel and patrons who reside in Edmond will now have a faster way to get there. Edmond’s public bus system, Citylink, will be beginning a route that stops along the Social Security office in Oklahoma City, thus making it much easier and more convenient to get there.
Recently, developers Mark Ruffin and Nick Preftakes offered the City Council of Edmond a deal that will allow Citylink to pass through the Social Security office in Oklahoma City. The route will be part of the express route that the public transportation systems takes to the city.
Ruffin and Preftakes requested that seven of the Citylink trips be utilized in stopping at the Social Security office. Edmond’s public bus system currently makes 11 trips to Oklahoma City each day, so it will have to adjust the route schedules slightly to accommodate the new stop. The developers are assuring everyone that, despite the changes in route, there will be no increase in mileage.
A $63,600-deal was offered to the City of Edmond for the proposed new route. Payments will cover a one-time payment of $50,000, a monthly payment of $1,000 for a year, and $1,600 for the reprinting of the new bus schedule and maps. The deal will be reevaluated by the developers and City Council each year.
