Whatever the topic of discussion with StarMetro, I would encourage you to get any promises in writing. They can and do lie to their customers at their convenience.

If so I am concerned that the light house doesn't have a meeting room large enough to handle all the people. Also can you explain the scope of the meeting since I am familiar with the issues raised by TCB but there are also other issues that are of concern pertaining to the fixed bus route system and the inaccessibility of there web site and scheduling information. If the meeting is open to the public has there been any effort to notify people and organizations such as NFBF. Unfortunately I think a lot of people won't come due to the late notice and the fact there isn't any public transportation available to get home after the meeting. I would ask Brian if it would be possible to make Dial A ride service available since this is a transportation issue. Also unless this has changed it use to be a requirement of the TDC board to provide transportation to public meetings that affected there policies so this may be another option that Colleen Roland can work out with Dial A ride.
