Transit Bus Operations


City of Norman transit service operates fare-free.

As part of the Go Norman Transit Plan, a Fare Analysis was conducted and recommended to continue fare free operations. If a fare was considered in the future, a public participation process must be conducted before implementation.

Norman to OKC commuter bus service (Norman Express route 024, formerly the Sooner Express) is operated through EMBARK OKC. A single trip cash fare for this route is $3.00 per adult, and $1.50 for reduced rate riders. Additional information about fares and passes for OKC transit services can be found here.


The City of Norman is pleased to offer public transportation as a part of its services to the residents and visitors of Norman. Fixed-route and paratransit services are provided through a partnership with the Central Oklahoma Transportation and Parking Authority doing business as EMBARK Norman.
