At previous meetings, not the NOVA 1020 meetings, Star Metro's long range
plans were to have a route to Wakulla Springs and if they could get the
funding from the state have a daily trip from Chattahoochee by way of Quincy
to Tallahassee to pick up state workers.

This was before the economy took a nose dive.
