OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Members of the Oklahoma City Council want to broaden the look the panel is taking at installing streetcars in the city's downtown.
Several council members on Wednesday said they want a consultant group to study a range of available options for streetcar routes and the scope of the downtown project.
The Oklahoman reports (http://is.gd/8LFbv2) the city has $120 million for the project that's part of a $777 million improvements package from a 2009 sales tax election.
A transit subcommittee has proposed a streetcar line that would circulate amid Bricktown, St. Anthony Hospital and other destinations.
A public hearing is to be held later this month.
