December 1, 2012 changes to Starmetro service StarMetro Enhances Its Weekend Service: Azalea Saturday to run every 25 minutes and Night 4 to serve FSU on Sundays November 15, 2012 Saturday, December 1, StarMetro will implement its newly enhanced weekend service. The changes to the weekend service stem from ridership trends and customer feedback gathered from listening sessions held in September. The changes to the weekend service include: * Azalea Saturday - The route that runs along West Tennessee Street will go from a 50-minute headway to 25-minute headway from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. This change will give customers twice as many opportunities to board the bus. A headway refers to the amount of time between each bus.

This small map change will allow students to travel between Alumni Village and the college campus on Sundays. This map change only affects the Sunday portion of the service.

Savings from the Red Hills Saturday and Tall Timbers Saturday routes will go towards the increase in service for the Azalea Saturday route, the most traveled route in StarMetro’s weekend service.
