Very disappointing not to see Red Hills (which services a great deal of the 
state office parks) included in this extended hours.

StarMetro Extends Weekday Service

More Opportunities to Travel Later in the Evening - Starting today, many 
customers using StarMetro can look forward to more service in the evenings. 
Recently, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) awarded the transit 
agency with a service development grant to extend a majority of its weekday 
service until 8 p.m. Currently, StarMetro operates a weekday service that is 
comprised of 12 routes that run from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. and a nighttime service 
that consists of six routes that run from 7 to 10 p.m. 

"Adding an extra hour of service on the majority of our weekday routes is part 
of an ongoing commitment to make StarMetro a convenient and effective way to 
move about Tallahassee," said Ivan Maldonado, director of StarMetro. "Our 
customers have asked for extended service, and we are pleased to be able to 
address that demand." 

StarMetro will take a phased-in approach to extending nine of its 12 weekday 
routes. Today, the Dogwood 
<http://www.talgov.com/starmetro/starmetro-routes-d.aspx>  and San Luis 
<http://www.talgov.com/starmetro/starmetro-routes-s.aspx>  routes will begin 
running their newly extended schedules with the Forest route running its new 
schedule on June 3. The Azalea, Big Bend, Canopy, Evergreen, Gulf and Moss 
routes will begin running their new schedules on August 24, just in time for 
the new school year. These nine weekday routes were chosen and prioritized due 
to their anticipated ridership demands.

'I am proud of StarMetro for their continued efforts to find ways to improve 
our transit system,' said City Commissioner Nancy Miller, lead commissioner on 
the City's Long Range Planning target issue committee. 'The extension of the 
weekday service will prove to be a huge benefit to our students and those who 
work later in the evening as they can now be assured that StarMetro will be 
there to take them home after their evening classes or shifts.'
