What gives here,  If this service is available with two hour service 
reservation why does dial a ride require disabled people to call in the day 
before?  If Star metro can do this why do we have to put up with late pick ups 
for regular dial a ride service.

Tallahassee, FL - StarMetro is offering rides for residents on the northwest 
of Tallahassee. It's called the Lake Jackson Flex system and will offer "curb to
curb" transportation to any location within 11 square miles of the Lake Jackson 
Residents said this new system will be a big help for their area of town.
"Prior to this service we would have, I would have to bring him every morning so
he could go to work and I would have to pick him up every evening after work. So
it's really helped us out a lot and we very much appreciate it," said Katrina 
Son uses the Lake Jackson Flex.
The hours of operation are from 6 - 9 A.M. and 4 - 7 P.M. It also connects with 
of StarMetro's fixed routes at the Lake Jackson Town Center.
Lake Jackson Flex is available to the general public. If you would like to make 
reservation for the Flex bus to pick you up the number to call is (850)891-5199 
6:30 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. Reservations must be made at least two hours in advanced 
trips are on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The Flex bus is handicap and bike friendly as well. StarMetro said their regular
one-way fare fees apply.
