The Spokies program began with an Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant administered by the City of Oklahoma City's Office of Sustainability. This grant was designed to promote energy efficiency, including alternative methods of transportation. Spokies is just one more example of the progressive ideas and programs being developed and implemented to improve the quality of life for everyone in Oklahoma City.
Visitors can use a credit card to pay the $5 daily membership fee at any of the kiosk locations, then ride between many of the downtown attractions including the National Memorial, Myriad Botanical Gardens, Museum of Art, Banjo Museum and Bricktown. Additional attractions such as the Land Run Memorial, Oklahoma Heritage Museum, Overholser Mansion and others are just a short walk from the Spokies kiosks.
