This week is the time to voice concerns or questions about proposed bus stops in StarMetro's Nova2010 plan. Two listening sessions will allow riders to see maps of 738 bus stops, also known as "star stops." The first session will be from 7 to 9 a.m. Thursday at C.K. Steele Plaza, followed by a second session from 4 to 6 p.m. The current system has 1,052 bus stops citywide. Nova2010, which is designed to create more routes that won't need to go through the downtown plaza, has 738 bus stops; 473 are currently in use. According to the city, the new stops are for routes that are not currently available, such as on portions of Orange Avenue and Blair Stone Road. StarMetro Executive Director Ron Garrison said the listening sessions are not a requirement. They are an extra step toward reaching out to riders, he said. "But if the customers have a better idea that better serves the public at no additional costs," Garrison said, referring to the stops, "we can incorporate those into the plan." The plan is slated to roll out in July 2011. Since it was revealed, some residents expressed concerns regarding the plan's impact on seniors and those with disabilities. The plan includes eliminating some routes, reducing trips throughout neighborhoods and changing the distance between stops from one-quarter mile to half a mile. "It's ridiculous," said Ollie Cue, a 75-year-old Tallahassee resident who's been riding the bus for six years.
