This one-of-a-kind exhibit hall will make visitors feel as though they have entered a modern-day transit depot where The CONNECTION runs on three distinctly colored “lines.” The red, green and blue lines will transport riders (virtually, that is) to various “stops” where Oklahoma can be experienced through local vendors, homegrown businesses and Made In Oklahoma products. . Check the daily schedule posted in the Station for educational demonstrations and various entertainment presented on the green and blue “station platforms.” IT’S AN OKLAHOMA SHOWCASE!

Be sure to visit OG&E and BancFirst at RESOURCE SQUARE on the Red Line.

September 15 - 25, 2011 A uniquely Oklahoma experience!
