At EMBARK, we’re more than a bus company. We’re a close-knit transit family that plans, schedules, operates, promotes and maintains downtown parking and the public transportation system throughout the Oklahoma City metro area. Our people have passion to be world-class transportation that is accessible to all, and all want to access it.
EMBARK buses serve much of the Oklahoma City metro area. Each route’s hours of operation vary, but many popular routes run about every 30 minutes during the weekday and every 60 minutes on Saturday and Sunday.
