The Boston Tea Party was a demonstration against a government transportation monopoly that triggered a war. To prevent rebuilding that path to war, to prevent government monopolies controlling the mobility liberty, the US (“post Roads”) and Oklahoma Constitutions forbid government transportation monopolies:

  • Oklahoma Constitution: Article II, Bill of Rights, SECTION II-32. “Perpetuities and monopolies are contrary to the genius of a free government, and shall never be allowed, nor shall the law of primogeniture or entailments ever be in force in this State.

The City of Tulsa, in violation of the Oklahoma Constitution:

  • Taxed the people of Tulsa who will never ride their monopoly to implement a Bus Rapid Transit Monopoly on Peoria:
  • Rejected JPods privately funding the building of a solar-powered mobility network on Peoria to implement a government monopoly Bus Rapid Transit (link).
    • For the Aero BRT, a bus arrives every 20 minutes during non-peak times and every 15 minutes during peak times, Monday through Friday, (6:00 am to 9:45 am and 3:00 pm to 7:40 pm).
    • Saturday service is every 20 minutes from 5:20 am to 10:30 pm.
    • Sunday service is every 30 minutes from 7:30 am to 8:25 pm.

Below are Route-Time® maps of how long it takes to travel on a JPods vehicle. Note, you do not wait for a JPods vehicle; vehicles are waiting in a station for you to arrive. These maps show travel time (walk-ride-walk) from the Red Cross.

First map the Red Cross is downtown. So 24 hours a day, 7 days a week anywhere on Peoria can be accessed in about 18 minutes. You can ride everywhere, then walk to the yellow circle away from a station.

If there were free markets in transportation in Tulsa, in the time required to wait for a government monopoly bus, you could have arrived at your destination and walked a considerable distance further.
