"With A Hand on the Pulse of Lee County!"

   Public Transit is a "people-moving" business!  The goal and "essential function" of transit planning is to move people from one point to another in the most timely and cost-effective manner.  

  The proposed plan is based on the Pulse System, a system endorsed by Jarrett Walker, internationally renowned transit planner, owner of Walker and Associates, and author of the book, Human Transit: How Clearer Thinking Can Enrich Our Communities and Our Lives.  This "Pulse Plan" is one that is already used in neighboring counties of Florida, such as Collier and Sarasota.  It is one that should be implemented here in Lee County, too!




  The one overwhelming reason why the Pulse Plan should be adopted is because it gets people to where they are going in a much quicker and efficient way.  If there is any way to build up ridership and to improve transit in Lee County, it is to provide a service that people will want to use!  What better way to do that than to improve travel times, especially when the current service is especially lacking in this area? 
  Let's compare the Pulse Plan with LeeTran's current service in the following page:
