This has been the long range plan for Star Metro for years.

It is grant money from FDOT

A $260,000 grant from StarMetro and FDOT will fund the system for two years, 
but they're already looking to expand.

"We're gonna work toward filing another grant application to expand the service 
and look at different locations such as the outlying areas, Chattahoochee, 
Greensboro, and Havana," says Gadsden County's Planning & Community Development 
Director Howard Douglas

  Hi all,

  The below is excerpted from an email that I just received; it appears an 
alert person, interested in StarMetro, has just found a news story involving 
it's expansion to other counties, but paid for by Tallahassee residents:

  "So, we Tallahassee bus riders are losing service but StarMetro is giving 
$200,000+ to Gadsden Co. so they can have the 'Gadsden Express.' Copy and paste
