[tabi] Re: Fw: City of Tallahassee News Release - StarMetro Updates Website with New System Information

I thought at one time that is what they were going to do.  I tried to get on 
the beta team but never heard anything.  I called twice and never got a return 
call.  I think it was Erica that sent me the info.  Maybe they will do both.

  I think it's a real shame that StarMetro chose to reinvent the wheel with 
their own trip planner, rather than send their info to Google, which already 
has an accessible trip planning system, and which also happens to interface 
with the navigation systems for the blind.

  Mr. Waterman, how about it? could yo also send the trip info to Google 
Transit?

        StarMetro Updates Website with New System Information

        Today, customers can visit Talgov.com/StarMetro to view information on 
StarMetro's new decentralized system, which takes effect on July 11. The 
updated website features route maps and timetables for the new system.

        "Until the launch of the new system, customers will also be able to 
access our current route information," said Ron Garrison, executive director of 
StarMetro. "Even though we are two months away from the launch of the new 
system, we felt that it was necessary to begin publicizing the new route maps 
and time tables."

        In the near future, StarMetro will implement additional changes to help 
improve the customer experience. Closer to the launch of the new system, two 
new web applications - trip planning and online fare purchase - will also 
launch. With the trip planning application, StarMetro customers will be able to 
type in a beginning point, end point and arrival time; the application will 
then relay to the customer a detailed travel itinerary using StarMetro's new 
system. With the online fare purchase application, StarMetro customers will be 
able to purchase a 31-day fare card using their personal credit card via 
Talgov.com/StarMetro.

        For more information, please contact StarMetro at 891-5200 or visit 
Talgov.com/StarMetro. Other ways to view information include liking StarMetro's 
official Facebook page at Facebook.com/starmetrotransit and following 
StarMetro's official Twitter page at Twitter.com/ridestarmetro.
