Executive Order 13330 signed by President Bush on February 24,2004, established the new Interagency Transportation Coordinating Council on Access and Mobility, chaired by the Secretary of Transportation, Norman Y. Mineta. An outgrowth of this was United We Ride.
The Governor's Oklahoma United We Ride Council was created by Executive Order 2006-20 by Governor Brad Henry. The Council was continued in Executive Order 2008-31; Bylaws were adopted on November 20, 2008. The Council was continued in Executive Order 2011-10 by Governor Mary Fallin.
In fulfilling its purpose, the Council initiated a strategic planning process that sought to identify priorities and develop processes to identify needs and potential solutions for increased effectiveness of transportation coordination. Council members have been actively involved in regular meetings, transportation conferences, and seminars throughout the state, region, and nation, relaying current program status and information regarding Oklahoma's community transportation coordination. The Council has now revised its strategic plan and developed a Marketing and Outreach Plan for implementing that plan.
Initial funding for Oklahoma United We Ride was provided by the United States Department of Transportation Federal Transit Administration (FTA). Subsequent program funding was provided through an Interagency Agreement between the Oklahoma Department of Human Services (OKDHS), Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA), and Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT). Oklahoma Department of Rehabilitation Services is the lead agency on coordinating the activities of the Council.
