For bus travelers, it may be helpful to understand the new layout of the CK Steele Plaza, located on 111 West Tennessee Street, bordered by Call Street on the south, Adams Street on the east, and Duval Street on the west. C K Steele Plaza has two main structures that are open areas that have coverings to protect those waiting for their buses from the rain and the sun. Gates are located around these structures. Gates are areas that buses are assigned to go so that riders know where to wait for their desired bus. The gates are located on the outer edges of the structures so that the buses can pull in to their assigned gates. The gates are differentiated by numbers, which increase in value as one travels around the edge of the structures in a clockwise direction. The information center, as well as restrooms and vending machines, is located in the middle of the structure to the south of Tennessee Street. At the information center, one can purchase bus/transfer tickets and passes and inquire about routes. There are also maps available at the information center. Gates surround the information center, restrooms, and vending machines. Gates surrounding the information, restrooms, and vending machines includes the following: 1, 3, 11, 12, 13, and 14. To the south of the structure with the information center and across the center driveway is the other main structure which is also covered. This structure consists mainly of gates. Gates around this structure include the following: 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, and 22. To the south of this structure is Call Street. There is one gate, Gate 24, that is separated from the two structures described. This gate is located across Adams Street. The following are the buses assigned to each gate upon entering CK Steele Plaza. Gate 1: Canopy (eastbound) Gate 3: Canopy (westbound) Gate 11: Moss (southbound); Route 5 (southbound) Gate 12: Evergreen (eastbound) Gate 13: Moss (northbound); Route 5 (northbound) Gate 14: Dogwood (southbound) Gate 15: Azalea (westbound); Route 1 (westbound) Gate 16: Big Bend (northbound); Route 2 (northbound) Gate 17: Evergreen (westbound) Gate 18: Route 2 (southbound) Gate 19: Dogwood (northbound); Route 1 (eastbound) Gate 20: Azalea (eastbound) Gate 21: Forest (northbound) Gate 22: Big Bend (southbound) Gate 24: Southwood Express (eastbound) If you have further questions about bus travel or any other orientation and mobility concerns, please contact the Lighthouse's Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialists, Evelyn Worley and Stacie Davis, at (850) 942-3658, eworley@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx or sdavis@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx .
