Yep, thanks from me too, Chip. I think you should tell them that as John P and 
Lynda J have already discussed with them, it is better to install the signs 
vertically but install them, and SOON. Thanks again! Sila

  Hi Lynn,


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


  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.

        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 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 6:30 p.m. at the Tallahassee Senior Center, located at 1400 N. Monroe Street 
        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.'
