Subject: [tabi] Upcoming Route Changes | News | StarMetro
Oh thank you Owen for motivating me to take my keyboard in hand to write these
This one is for all the fans and critics of star Metro. Ok, here is what I
know: Most of it coming from Star Metro’s website. (Links to be provided at the
bottom of these polished proses.
For the fans of the old centralized routes where every bus went to the C K
Steele Plaza; there will be two more routes going into the plaza, and they are
the Gulf and San Louis routes.
The San Louis route will be the roué that goes into The Center of Tallahassee
aka Tallahassee Mall by way of Allen Road. The headway is 60 minutes. The Gulf
route is the route that goes to both hospitals. The time between busses,
headway is 60 minutes.
The new schedules are at the printer now and hopefully be ready for
distribution by the end of next week 20 dash 26. For those who remember the
booklet form of the schedule well it seems to have been brought back from a
long and lingering death for a nominal fee of maybe $1.25 or $1.50. This will
come out later on in the year. The bus schedules in the form of a flyer will
still be free.
