      StarMetro Extends Moss Route to Run Every 20 Minutes

      Beginning this Monday, July 18, StarMetro will increase the frequency of 
service along the Moss route during off-peak hours on weekdays. Currently, the 
Moss route operates on a 20 minute headway during the morning and afternoon 
peak periods and a headway of 40 minutes during the mid-day. With this new 
change, the Moss route will run 20 minutes all day from Monday through Friday. 

      "Since launching the new route structure on Monday, we've seen standing 
room only on the Moss route," said Ron Garrison, executive director of 
StarMetro. "By continuing 20 minute service all day, we hope to better serve 
our customers using this route."

      The Moss route serves Frenchtown, Bond Community and South City. 

      "We saw the need. We heard our customers, and now we're making the 
change," added Garrison.

      'Headway' refers to the length of time between buses. For example, if a 
route operates on a 20 minute headway, then the bus serving that route will 
pass by every 20 minutes. 

      'Peak period' refers to morning and afternoon travel times.

      StarMetro will continue to monitor customer input via the departmental 
email addresses at starmetro@xxxxxxxxxx and starmetro.marketing@xxxxxxxxxxx
