Our history all began with United We Ride the Interagency Transportation Coordinating Council on Access and Mobility.
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 (see the Order here) 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. These Executive Orders may be viewed in their entirety at Office of the Secretary of State.
