Oklahoma City area residents can find out more about public transportation resources in the community at a meeting to be held Thursday.

MyRide, a Web-based clearinghouse for public transportation resources, and the Governor’s United We Ride Council are hosting the meeting from 9 a.m. to noon at the Oklahoma Library for the Blind, 300 NE 18.

In addition to demonstrating features of the MyRide website, speakers will represent local transportation systems, regional councils of government, 2-1-1 services, area agencies on aging and the Oklahoma Department of Human Services’ 5310 funding program, which purchases accessible vehicles to address transportation needs of seniors, people with disabilities and those classified as low-income.

Online preregistration is encouraged using the “On the Road — Statewide” tab at http://www.ok.gov/unitedweride so organizers can plan for room capacity.

MyRide at www.myride.ok.gov is a clearinghouse of public transportation information and resources. Website visitors may select the “Find Rides by County” tab to get information about schedules, fees, routes and special programs in their communities.
