I saw this article and it made me think, what if we focused some shorter term public transit spending on cities that have the lowest numbers of public transit trips, primarily due to lack of infrastructure?

The U.S. Cities Where the Fewest Commuters Get to Work By Car - Emily Badger - The Atlantic Cities

i am not hugely familiar with OKC, but 2.2% of trips by public transit...seems like places like that have the potential for most "bang for your buck" improvements. of course, some areas are just not going to work, and maybe OKC is one of them, but wouldn't this be a great way to remove some of our wasteful energy consumption?
