Broken Arrow is a suburb of Tulsa. You will probably need to get a taxi or rent a car. There are public busses, but night time routes are limited. Go to Tulsatransit.org to get info on busses. Of course, even if you can get to Broken Arrow on the bus, then you've got to figure out a way to get from the bus stop to your hotel, or wherever you are staying. If you are not comfortable getting a rental car and driving in a strange location at night, then a taxi will be your best bet. It will likely cost $35 or $40 to get from the airport to Broken Arrow by taxi, and if you are arriving late, when traffic is not bad, the trip should take about 30 - 40 minutes.

You'll need to rent a car or take a taxi.

Taxi's are kind of expensive in Tulsa; the dispatcher for any of the cab companies should be able to estimate the fare for you when you call them to order a taxi, or if you just get one @ the airport the driver should be able to estimate the fare before you get in the cab. All cab fares will be similar.

The major car rental companies all serve the Tulsa airport.

Driving in Tulsa from the airport to Broken Arrow is very easy. You'll take Highway 11 East to I-244 East to Hwy. 169 South (beware, likely construction) to Hwy. 51 East (affectionately known as the Broken Arrow Expressway, as it runs from the middle of Broken Arrow diagonally to downtown Tulsa. You can use any of the major mapping programs (i.e., Yahoo Maps) or get a map from the car rental company and ask the clerk to show you the route on the map.

Welcome to Tulsa!

Tulsa has very affordable rental car rates especially on the weekends. Check out Dollar and Alamo. You really need a car in Oklahoma to get around.

Do not try to use the buses to get around. Rental cars are your best bet. Tulsa and Broken Arrow are extremely easy because of the highway system here. The cities are not very big compared to other U.S. cities. 7:30 a.m. - 8:30 a.m. and 5:0o p.m.-6:30 p.m. are the only really busy times with traffic. Exit and roadway signs are posted and easy to find. Drive if you can.
