You would think but I am not surprised. StarMetro has a track history of doing what is best for StarMetro, not the people who use the service.

Pubic or not You would think they would be more concerned with

Robert
providing service to people who have no other choice first.

I think what you are seeing here is more of the desperate attempt to
get a
car-addicted society to use pubic transportation. It would be
interesting
for Dial-A-Ride users in the expanded service area to use the Lake
Jackson
Flex System and see how the two compare.

What gives here, If this service is available with two hour service
reservation why does dial a ride require disabled people to call in
the
day before? If Star metro can do this why do we have to put up with
late
pick ups for regular dial a ride service.

Tallahassee, FL - StarMetro is offering rides for residents on the
northwest side
of Tallahassee. It's called the Lake Jackson Flex system and will
offer
"curb to
curb" transportation to any location within 11 square miles of the
Lake
Jackson area.
Residents said this new system will be a big help for their area of
town.
"Prior to this service we would have, I would have to bring him every
morning so
he could go to work and I would have to pick him up every evening
after
work. So
it's really helped us out a lot and we very much appreciate it," said
Katrina Johnson,
Son uses the Lake Jackson Flex.
The hours of operation are from 6 - 9 A.M. and 4 - 7 P.M. It also
connects
with two
of StarMetro's fixed routes at the Lake Jackson Town Center.
Lake Jackson Flex is available to the general public. If you would
like to
make a
reservation for the Flex bus to pick you up the number to call is
(850)891-5199 between
6:30 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. Reservations must be made at least two hours
in
advanced and
trips are on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The Flex bus is handicap and bike friendly as well. StarMetro said
their
regular
one-way fare fees apply.
