> StarMetro customers will soon welcome some new amenities to their local bus 
> stops. Today, StarMetro will begin installing 28 new benches and eight new 
> shelters at bus stops throughout Tallahassee.

> "Tallahassee weather is often unpredictable," said City Commissioner Nancy 
> Miller, lead commissioner on the City's Long Range Planning target issue 
> committee. "By installing more benches and shelters, we can ensure that our 
> StarMetro customers are safe, comfortable and protected from the elements 
> while they wait for the bus"

> Staff anticipates that all benches and shelters will be installed within the 
> next three months. The installation of these new benches and shelters is a 
> priority identified by the City Commission.

> To view a complete list of the new bench and shelter locations, please visit

> responsible for maintaining nearly 225 benches and shelters," said Ivan 
> Maldonado, interim director of StarMetro. "This is a great accomplishment as 
> our amenity to stop ratio is much higher than those of our sister agencies, 
> like the Regional Transit System (RTS) in Gainesville."
