Boy do I feel dumb asking this question. Here goes.

Ok I have low vision and not a user of Braille so what should I be telling Star 
Metro about their Braille signage  for the bus stops. I plan to go to at lease 
one of their meetings. 

Also if they lower the print signage to close to eye level I may be able to see 
the print. This print signage is the route letter and phone number for getting 
route times.

StarMetro invites you to attend an upcoming listening session. These listening 
sessions provide customers the opportunity to share their ideas for improving 
the overall system directly with StarMetro's Planning staff.

      'While we accept suggestions all year round, these listening sessions 
provide a special opportunity for our customers to meet with our Planning staff 
one-on-one,' said Ron Garrison, executive director of StarMetro. 'This 
one-on-one communication between Planner and customer really opens the door to 
exploring new ideas for future route improvements.'

      StarMetro's listening sessions will take place:

        a.. Tuesday, September 25, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 4:30 to 
6:30 p.m. at C.K. Steele Plaza, located at 111 W. Tennessee Street 
        b.. Thursday, September 27, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 4:30 to

      Next week's listening sessions will also give visually impaired customers 
the opportunity to weigh-in on StarMetro's newest endeavor to provide Braille 
signage on its bus stops, also known as StarStops. 
      Visually impaired customers will be able to review Braille options under 
consideration for the new signage.

looking for ways to improve the system and make it more accessible.'
