The city of Oklahoma City is to receive $13.6 million in Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery grants to help create a public transit hub at the Santa Fe Depot in downtown Oklahoma City.

And the state Department of Transportation is to receive $1.8 million in a TIGER grant to make improvements to 15 miles of state-owned railroad track between Erick and Sayre that has been out of service for a decade. The railway is intended to connect Erick to a freight rail corridor serving major cities in western Oklahoma.
