I am on the phone with Brian Waterman at Star Metro right this minute and have tried to ask some of your questions - this is what Brian has to say: re: malls - they are going into the malls; specifically to the Governor's Square back door by Talbolts. re: nights and weekends Weekdays will be for 13 daytime hours + 3 additional night hours. Saturday service is the same as weekday service except they are not going to the three place people generally go for work: Southwood, Innovation Park & North of I-10 on Thomasville Road. Hours of operation for all other buses on Saturday will be 11 hours. Sundays will have 6 hours of service which is the same as it is now. Nights & Sundays will have one additional destination - the WalMart on W Tennessee Street. re: safety - TPD has agreed to make transfer points a part of their daily patrols, and Star Metro hope to do so with LCSO. Wait times between transfer points will be as short as possible, no more than 10-20 minutes. If possible, they will move lighting where needed. Grants for audible signalsare being applied for. Sidewalks will be in place or under construction before the new system and routes take effect. Brain also said there will be a new report about the bus system on the website by this Friday at www.talgov.com/commision/meetings/index.cfm For questions call Briandirectly at his desk line at 891-5564 Hope that helps, Barbara -- Lighthouse of the Big Bend Guiding People Through Vision Loss 1286 Cedar Center Drive Tallahassee, FL 32301 (850) 942-3658 Check out the TABI resource web page at http://acorange.home.comcast.net/TABI and please make suggestions for new material. if you'd like to unsubscribe you can do so through the freelists.org web interface, or by sending an email to the address tabi-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with the word "unsubscribe" in the subject.
