StarMetro To Hold Listening Sessions on Bus Stop Analysis
August 30, 2010
Nova2010 Bus Stop Locations Open for Public Input - On Thursday,
September 2, StarMetro
will hold two Listening Sessions to garner feedback from bus patrons
about the proposed
bus stop locations for its route decentralization project known as
Nova2010. The
first session will take place from 7 to 9 a.m., and the second session
will take
place from 4 to 6 p.m. Both sessions will take place in C.K. Steele
Plaza. Bus patrons
who cannot attend these Listening Sessions may view the bus stop
location maps online
and email feedback to nova2010project(at)talgov(dot)com or
and/or call StarMetro's main office at 850-891-5200.
The proposed Nova2010 bus stop locations come from a thorough bus stop
which took place over the summer, with input from a consultant and
citizen/bus operator
group. Additionally, the Transit Advisory Group, a Mayor-appointed
citizen group,
consulted StarMetro Planners on the proposed bus stop locations.
Currently, StarMetro utilizes 1,052 bus stops spread out across the City
of Tallahassee.
Most of these bus stops are fairly close to one another, less than a
quarter of a
mile. According to the preliminary bus stop analysis, the Nova2010
system would utilize 738 bus stops. Of these 738 bus stops, 473
currently exist in
today's system, and 265 are brand-new bus stops. These new bus stops
would be placed
along corridors that are not served today and that would be served in
the Nova2010
system - corridors, such as North Monroe Street, Magnolia Drive, Capital
Circle NE/SE
and portions of Orange Avenue and Blair Stone Road. Most of the Nova2010
bus stops
would be placed within three-tenths of a mile from one another and at
major intersections
and trip generators.
StarMetro's Nova2010 route decentralization project aims to take the
current downtown
oriented route structure and break apart each route to create a more
grid-like route
structure with routes running from north to south and east to west, many
downtown's C.K. Steele Plaza. The City Commission approved the project
last spring.
