Brian, just so you know the link you posted is not accessable to people using speech. Apparently it is a image file and not actually a true .pdf file. When I clicked on the link after the document opens nothing can be read with speech. After all our efforts trying to get Star Metro to understand what blind people need for accessability we have acomplished absolutely nothing. It seems that common sense would tell you that blind people can't read print signs on a bus and scanned images are pictures and not written words.


Star Metro really needs to consider highering a ADA cordinator or someone that can give direction on all decisions made by Star Metro.

My earlier email had the link. Here it is again.

I have already reached out to Evelyn on Braille Guides. I do agree with you on a notification system. We used to have it, but it faded away about a year ago if not longer. I'll bring it up at our next staff meeting.

Thanks Brian.

How about some info like Owen requested which describes the changes? Also a
way to respond with comments electronicly? Is there any way to participate
other than meetings?

I thought I was signed up for the Star Metro notification list, but I
received nothing at all electronically talking about these changes?

It really would be helpful in reaching out to the community (if it's not
being done already) to allow a way for participating and learning ahead of
time other than having to go to a meeting.

Thanks!

Chip

3 public meetings were held during the last week of June. Flyers were
placed on every bus highlighting the meetings. One of the meetings was held
at CK Steele Plaza.

No I haven't, and it was my understanding when they were mentioned at the
last transit group meeting, they were described as "tentative" and much
more
public discussion was promised before they went into effect. Where's this
public discussion StarMetro?

Subject: [tabi] StarMetro changes effective 8/1/15

Has anyone heard anything of substance about the StarMetro changes
taking effect on 8/1/15? I know that the G won't go into Tallahassee
Mall anymore (they've been wanting to pull out for years) and I've
heard that the times on the E will change. I tried looking on the
city's website; there were maps but no timetables or text descriptions
of the changes that I could find.
