And yet, this problem, three years later, has not been addressed! In pursuing a "trunkline and feeder" system, LeeTran is going in the opposite direction of finding a suitable solution to this problem of connectivity!
Take for instance, the Pulse Plan's proposed nexus at Michigan and Marsh for the 10, 15, 20 and 105 Routes to exchange passengers. Instead of creating this point of interchange between four different routes, LeeTran instead says that this area does not require an interface. Instead, they plan to invest in their resources in building up the Rosa Parks Transfer Center, which will result in forcing passengers back to the main trunk line on Cleveland Ave., rather than in diversifying points at which passengers can make transfers. [See: ]
Creating more transfer hubs creates more options for passengers, just as it does with the US Interstate System. For example, a passenger on Palm Beach Blvd is able to take a bus to Lehigh Acres bus without ever having to go to Rosa Parks or the Edison Mall first. Or someone on Edison Av. can go to Ortiz Av. without having to go to Rosa Parks first. Not only does more transfer hubs save on overcrowding on the main trunk line, but it also saves significant valuable travel time for the passenger as well!
