Hi Lynn,


I think you should tell them about the signage as it applies to low
vision users!


I'm thinking they've had plenty of comments on their braille signage (as
it's been in the works for a very long time), but perhaps they forget
how much of our population is aging and has low vision?


Thanks for going.

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 Wants to Hear from You!

Customers Asked to Weigh-In on System's Performance at Listening
Sessions - If you enjoy riding the bus and have suggestions for
improvements, then 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

StarMetro's listening sessions will take place:

*       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 
*       Thursday, September 27, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 4:30
to 6:30 p.m. at the Tallahassee Senior Center, located at 1400 N. Monroe

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.

'We are 100 percent customer focused,' said Garrison. 'We are always
looking for ways to improve the system and make it more accessible.'
