Tallahassee, Florida - April 20, 2011 -

This week, StarMetro will begin the second phase of StarStop installation in preparation for the Nova2010 route decentralization project, launching this July. The second phase of installation includes the Azalea, Big Bend, Canopy, Moss and Tall Timbers routes, along with the installation of StarStops along the night routes. Phase two will conclude the installation of all StarStops for the new route structure.

"We are happy with the progress of the new stop installation thus far," Ron Garrison, Executive Director of StarMetro, said, "and we are looking forward to the second phase of the installation."

The Nova2010 system will utilize 766 bus stops. Of these 766 stops, 473 currently exist in today's system and 266 are brand-new bus stops. These 266 new StarStops will be placed along corridors that are not served today but will be served with the new system. These brand new StarStops will not be active until July.

Customers can continue to use the 473 existing stops leading up to the launch. These StarStops will feature a sign that says, "Active."
