So how many of you have gone to the airport in the past year. And would you use the airport if there was bus service to the airport?

a show of hands please.

I think we are loosing our focus here. We are not going any where or it is going to be harder to go anywhere in Tallahassee if the busses stop going into the neighborhoods.

I know. You would think busses would go to the airport so that people who don't drive can get there and get to their flights. And, obviously, if it is coming up in every meeting, they should consider it.

I hope this information is helpful to you.

What is all this fear they're harboring?

We're in the twentieth century?

So what they are saying they are not going to have stops on the west side
of
town. They don't have to have a priority bus just for the airport. Just go by it. don't know about this public transportation system and where it is
heading. Sounds like they are not going to have much of a public transit
system. Maybe a private company will come in and blow them out of the
water
and then they will be out of the public transit system and will be rolled
back to the early 19th century . Hmm!




Thanks,

At the listening session that I attended, StarMetro reps stated that they would not have a route to the airport because they didn't think they would
get enough ridership to make it worth having the route and that the
airport
would have to help fund for such a route.

I hope this information is helpful to you.

Star Metro just emailed the Lighthouse:

"We just updated the turn-by-turn. We'll review it after we get back from
our Listening Session at the CCOC. So, you should expect the updated
turn-by-turn this afternoon around 3."

They are going to send the Lighthouse a turn-by-turn list as well, so
we will post it if we get it before you : ) Either way, it should be
coming to you soon.

*Subject:* [tabi] Star Metro Listening Sessions


 *StarMetro to hold Final Listening Sessions on nova2010*** *Public
Input Sought on Route Decentralization Project***



During the month of November, StarMetro will hold two final Listening
Sessions to garner customer input on its route decentralization
project titled Innovation in Transit or nova2010 for short.



Listening Sessions will take place on:

-         November 6 at City Hall in the Tallahassee Room, located at
300
South Adams Street, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

-         November 10 at City Hall in the Tallahassee Room, located at
300
South Adams Street, from 5:30 to 7 p.m.



The nova2010 project aims to take the current downtown oriented route
structure and break apart the structure to create a more grid-like
system with routes running on main roads from north to south and east
to west with many routes bypassing downtown's C.K. Steele Plaza. This
new structure would create many transfer points scattered throughout
the city.



By traveling on major roads and eliminating route redundancies, a
decentralized StarMetro route structure would offer customers:

-         Reductions in downtown transfers.

-         Reductions in travel time.

-         Reductions in carbon footprint.

-         Increases in on-time performance.

-         Increases in frequency (bus comes more often).

-         Increases in regional travel opportunities.



"The ultimate goal of nova2010 is to create a transit system that
better meets the needs of customers - direct, fast, forward," said
Ron Garrison, executive director of StarMetro.



StarMetro plans to launch the new, grid-like system in fall 2010.



For more information, please call StarMetro's main office at (850)
891-5200 or visit *Talgov.com/starmetro*. For additional project
updates, please call the nova2010 hotline at (850) 891-5283 or email
nova2010project@xxxxxxxxxxx Citizens may also follow updates on
Facebook at www.facebook.com/nova2010project and Twitter at
