OKC Real Estate Briefs July 16, 2004


Currin, Darren, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Patrons to the Bricktown area will find it easier to navigate around the entertainment district starting this weekend thanks to the launch of a new free shuttle service.

Called The Bricktown Express, the shuttle service will operate every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 4:30 pm to 2:30 am. The shuttle will operate a continuous loop from the north parking lot with stops at participating restaurants and clubs, to Bass Pro Shops and return.

Entry to the north parking lot is located on Main Street, just east of E.K. Gaylord. Shuttle stops and participating merchants are identified with purple and gold flags throughout the district.

The Bricktown Shuttle will allow customers to park once and be whisked to their favorite restaurant and on to a movie, shopping or sporting event for free, said Rob Farrah, chief operating officer of Oklahoma City-based JDM Investments and president of the Bricktown Association. In addition to the scheduled service, we also plan to run the Bricktown Shuttle during special events.

One of the factors spurring the decision to create the shuttle service was a desire to deal with the perceived parking problem in Bricktown. Frank Sims, executive director of the association, noted that there are more than 4,000 parking spaces in Bricktown and another 1,000 on the way.

As Bricktown continues to grow, we feel we needed to find a solution to ease parking and help make getting around the district customer friendly, said Sims. We believe The Oklahoman Bricktown Express is the solution and offers an exciting, user-friendly alternative.

With the opening of the Harkins Bricktown 16 Theatre scheduled to open Oct. 1, the association also views the new service as a way to create a stronger transportation system that will be in place to handle the influx of people that are expected to visit Bricktown when the theater opens its doors.

The idea for the shuttle was conceived because none of the participating restaurants owned their own parking lots, said Jim Cowan, owner of the Bricktown Brewery.
